Where am I being called
to serve others?
In the ever-wise words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.
Is your heart full of grace; your soul generated by love? If so, where are they guiding you to serve others?
If not, would you like them to be? I am reminded of a post on the Ponder Board a few weeks ago. A kindred soul and fellow ponderer out there wrote, “I was reminded in 2018 that service to others is the best way to gain perspective about what is most important in life.” Perhaps the antidote to painful feelings, perhaps the truest path to experiencing what we want to feel this year is to focus less on ourselves and more on serving other people. Service as both act of loving-kindness and map to relocate it, if lost.
To close, more of Dr. King’s wisdom: We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now.
Where are you being called to serve others in the fierce urgency of now?
