Following Christ into Service
Serving others isn't an add-on or for extra credit. It's just who we are as Christians. We can't say "We follow Jesus" and not serve others.
I tell you this: whenever you saw a brother or sister hungry or cold, whatever you did to the least of these,
so you did to Me.
--Matthew 25:40, The Voice
If you see some brother or sister in need and have the means to do something about it but turn a cold shoulder and do nothing, what happens to God's love?
It disappears. And you made it disappear.
My dear children, let's not just talk about love, let's practice real love.
I John 3:17-18, The Message

Okay is NOT Okay
The dominant story in Western culture tells us that we have what we deserve. Giving thanks to the Creator who provides in abundance helps us remember that we actually have much more than we deserve. Giving thanks calls us to share our blessings.
