10/8/19: Colossians 3:18-4:18; Psalm 78:56-72; Proverbs 24:28-29
There are at times in any church when the brethren may be called upon to “serve.” This service may be physical – mowing the grass or spiritual – visiting the sick or those in need, teaching a class, praying, etc. As we have read, we are all gifted and can serve using our talents.
If you are asked always, no matter who the “requester” may be keep in mind the person you are truly serving:
Colossians 3: 23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
