Sneaky Service

20130101-112006.jpg

She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
Proverbs 31:12

The above picture represents service to me in a couple of ways. There is a gentleman that I know who loves to serve people. He looks for needs to fill. Small needs, big needs, it doesn’t matter. He will fill it if he is able. One of the small things he does that most people don’t even realize is that when he hands you a mug he will turn the handle so that it is facing you. If its a soda he will open it and turn it so the opening is facing you. All you have to do is reach out and grab and take a drink.

The reason I love this quality is because it is such an unnoticed act. It is the perfect example of serving without seeking recognition for what you have done but simply for the sake of serving.

This is our challenge for the week. Pick someone to serve this week, preferable an authority figure (if you are married I suggest your husband). Look for something small every day that you can do to serve this person. Try to find something that won’t be realized. Something small and simple that will bless that person without them realizing it or knowing who it was that did it. We want invisibility or anonymity, either one. The goal is to purpose this every day. Pick the person now, its easy to switch it up every day but I want this to challenge us. So stick with the same person for the challenge, but don’t let that keep you to only that person for the week.

The second reason I love this picture is because it is my father’s favorite mug when he comes to visit me. When he is here I try to serve him his coffee in this mug because I know he likes it. This is a perfect example of a small way you can serve someone. Notice what they like or dislike and try to make that happen. If they like a certain type of coffee, bring in an extra bag of that, even if its not your turn to bring in the coffee. If your husband has a favorite mug, make sure its clean on Saturday morning before he gets up.

Don’t forget to comment on how it is going throughout the week!

How do you explain yourself in a short paragraph. What should I talk about? My love for Jesus? The fact that I am fascinated with tea and all that comes along with it? Should I explain that I am single? How do I capture my life in such a brief moment and still make it sound interesting?
