Long story short: I’m learning how to serve.
I’m learning how to serve joyfully and sacrificially. I find that I’m really good at serving when it’s convenient. Like: Sure I’ll give you a ride to that event I’m already going to! Or: Just one Sunday a month?! Perfect. Sign me up.
I’m not so great at the inconvenient or the uncomfortable. I want to be noticed and appreciated. I want to be served right back. I want serving to be EASY… not hard.
I’m learning how to serve all over again…
But King David replied to Araunah, “No, I insist on paying the full price. I will not take for the LORD what is yours, or sacrifice a burnt offering that costs me nothing.” 1 Chronicles 21:24, NIV
Here’s to more joy… and more sacrifice.
