Good morning and happy Friday! In Matthew, Jesus continues to remind his disciples that we are not here to be served but to serve others, just like Jesus. Jesus had a servants heart and we are to have a servants heart.

I easily fall into the trap of looking out for #1 and living my life in a way that pleases me, and not being concerned with others and their needs.

Selfishness will get us nowhere - it does not please God and it defeats the purpose for our lives.

I can think of several things in my life that need changing because of my selfishness. One being, I have a few elderly friends and relatives that I used to take the time to stop by and visit with often, that I haven't seen in a long time. I can so easily tell them that I am just too busy and can't find the time but Jesus wouldn't say that. If I can find time to do what I want to do, I can find the time to be a blessing in the lives of others.

Lord, thank you for putting opportunities in my life to be a servant. Help me to see those opportunities and then respond in a way that is pleasing to You and a blessing to the person I can serve. In Jesus' Name, Amen

Have a great day and a great weekend

Living fearlessly in Christ
