Matthew 20:28
For even I, the Son of Man, came here not to be served but to serve others, and to give my life for a ransom for many.

This scripture is just one of the many expressing the importance of serving others. You must realize that life is not just about what we can do for ourselves, the amount of possessions we can obtain, or the type of status we can attain. One of the most important responsibilities of the Christian is to serve others. This is the will of God. We must be aware of the needs of those around us.

II Corinthians 8:12-15 explains how we are to have a willing heart and mind, to be ready to give of our time, love, money and abilities.

The attitude of a servant consists of the following qualities: Humbleness, love, unselfishness, and willingness to serve.

Humbleness is an attribute Christ wants us to possess. Humbleness starts in the mind, holding others in higher esteem than ourselves, showing humility, and not being boastful or proud. Humbleness is also having a forgiving heart.

We must have love for everyone. Take delight in honoring one another. Love is patient, kind, not jealous, not rude. Love doesn't give up, doesn't lose faith. Love never fails. We must show love in our actions and deeds. Remember-God is love.

Be unselfish with your time, talents, money, and love. Giving reflects God's love. God is more interested in why we do something than what we do. It is all about the attitude. God loves a cheerful giver and I believe this consists of more areas than just monetary means. Giving helps others and will never go unnoticed.

Lastly, we must be willing to serve. Galatians 6:7 and II Corinthians 9:6-7 remind us that we reap what we sow. There are just so many needs unmet to set idle. We should not procrastinate or be lazy about our service to God and others.
