Jesus Came to Serve, Not to be Served

"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." Mark 10:45

Jesus is the reason for the season. And as we approach the day that we celebrate His birth, we should all be asking, "Lord, how can I serve You"? Economists say that consumer spending is down due to the economy, but the needs of our fellow men are up. Even when funds are low, we all have something to give: a smile, our time, our talents. Instead of feeling down and out if you can't give material things, visit a hospital, smile at the person you pass on the street, shovel the snow from a neighbor's yard. These are gifts that you can give not only during the holiday season, but throughout the year.

So, each day that you rise, ask, "Lord, how can I serve You today"? And watch the blessings you receive in return far exceed anything that you give.
