March 4 – Serve
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6:10
Opportunity is everywhere, every day. “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” Thomas A. Edison
I am presented with the opportunity to do good to someone every moment of the day: by changing the look on my face and smiling, momentarily adjusting my busy schedule to pause and listen, slowing down and letting the person coming onto I-4 to merge in front of me, or by greeting someone in the sanctuary on Sunday morning whom I haven’t met.
In each circumstance above, the Lord helps me overcome the “me first” mentality and be able to focus on ever-present opportunities to encourage, pray for and mentor others in our Calvary family of believers.
Today’s Prayer Focus: Pray for increased opportunities to serve the church.
