Those who serve our country in the military are honored for their service. Most people are very appreciative of their service and their sacrifices. There are many who serve their communities in much lesser ways.
God expects the service of His children, too. But how does one serve the God of all the world? God is not served by men’s hands (Acts 17:25). He is the one that provides all things for man. Our service to God is through our service to others.
Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me. Matt 25:40 ESV
Serve God today. Find someone that has a need that you can fulfill, and then go about serving God. Check on some of our widowed or elderly and serve God today. You can do something for someone who is ill and serve God. You can provide some transportation and serve God.
Serve God today and feel good.***
I am sure this has never happened to anyone else out there (tongue in cheek). It is not uncommon for me to begin a project when I receive a phone call. Once I finish the call, I remember that I need to send and email to someone. While on the internet, I see two emails I need to deal with. Of course, one of them requires a little checking before I can deal with it. I finally get back to my project, but then I realize that I have a different matter that has a deadline. So, I get on that. And on and on it goes.
All that distraction caused was an unsettled morning and possibly the loss of some time. However, the distractions of this world can cause us our salvation. We are distracted by the materialism of the world. We are distracted by the activities of the world. We are distracted by the people of this world. We are distracted by the things of this world. We are distracted by the lusts of this world.
We must discipline ourselves that we keep our focus upon heaven above and not on the world. Otherwise, we could miss the glory that awaits us.
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world — the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions — is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever. 1 John 2:15-17 ESV
Don’t lose your focus. Be diligent. Be disciplined. Serve God well and bring glory to His name all week long.
