“Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for Him is a waste of time or effort.” ~1 Corinthians 15:58
“Pray for her, OK?” Deb asks. “Let the others know.”
I hang up my cell and speed dial Kim.
“What can I do to help you, Kim?”
“I’m OK. Deb’s here cooking,” Kim replies
I’m not surprised. Deb is a master at service. Her actions remind me of The Purpose Driven Life, a great book by Pastor Rick Warren.
“We serve God by serving others,” the first chapter says.
Real servants do what’s needed, even when it’s inconvenient. Good job Deb!
Service can be sloppy.
WOW, that really scares this “Type A” person! If I can’t dot the “i” and cross the “t” I may have apoplexy (A condition Type A women develop when they do not feel in control)
“The truth is,” Rick Warren notes, ” everything we do is done poorly when we first start doing it. That’s how we learn.”
So, Rick, are you saying everything does not have to be planned out? Again, that’s tough for the “A” woman.
But, back to Deb in the kitchen. Last week she called me to pray over a friend who lost his brother. “We’re meeting to pray…come on over.”
I didn’t go. My schedule did not have prayer penciled in. I’m sure I missed a blessing.
Real servants take time to do every task with equal dedication, even those not on their lists.
