This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: 1 John 3:18 (ESV)
Happy Thanksgiving, B Moment listeners!
Today I am thinking about the option to serve or to be served. We’re celebrating Thanksgiving today, a day when we give thanks on so many levels and a day for being of service to others, particularly those less fortunate.
When I look at my own life, I have been all over the spectrum as it relates to service. Yet as I mature spiritually, I realize more and more the genuine fulfillment that comes when we are fulfilling the needs of others.
When I turn to the Scriptures, I just need to look at Christ’s life to see how he values serving others. The first instance that comes to mind is when Jesus knelt down and washed the feet of his disciples. And, of course, there is no greater act of service or sacrifice than Christ being crucified for us so that we might have eternal life.
I even notice how Jesus continues on with his pattern of serving others after his resurrection. During that time, Jesus went to the Sea of Galilee and greeted his disciples on the shoreline. As they returned to the shore, he met them with fish frying, and he invited them to breakfast. Jesus literally served breakfast for the disciples on the beach.
If Jesus can serve to that extent, we know how much he values serving others. Let us serve today and remember these words: “Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.” 1 John 3:18 (ESV)
