The call to serve.
Been recently challenged by this notion of service.
In an age of self improvement, self awareness and self gratification, we rarely stop to ask what our greater role is.
Where I was challenged relates to service to the King.
When we constantly look to see how the Big Guy can help us in our current situation. Save us in ways that suit our needs.
Without realizing it, we are asking God to serve us. Rather than us serve Him.
Its the height of selfishness.
We are called to grow His Kingdom. Spread His Love.
Yes, I burnt out a bit. Yes, I over committed and under delivered.
I lost hope when staring down the barrel of never ending service.
I lost sight of the bigger picture.
I only saw my actions based on the now. Not on the bigger concept.
Time to reconnect. Re-prioritize.
