Recently I have been thinking a lot about what do I love to do, what has Jesus wired me to do? In fact I was challenged to review my life purpose statement… in case you are wondering what it is, here you go.”To serve others by equipping and empowering them for greater service and outreach! “
One of the greatest temptations for those that love to serve, trust me I know is… pride… or as my blog title says, anyone watching? I find myself often looking around to see if anyone is watching, or waiting for someone to offer up a compliment? Looking to promote myself.
Think about Proverbs 30:32 “If you have been foolish, exalting yourself, or if you have been devising evil, put your hand on your mouth.”
Simply put, the next time you or I want to build up ourselves… think of this verse and if you must put your hand on your mouth…. literally!
Serve one another, but do it in love expecting nothing… nothing includes someone recognizing you!
Do you struggle with being humble? What do you do to remind yourself that it is not about you?
