September: Week 2

The Recipient

Some people are ‘easier’ to serve than others. Perhaps they ‘give back’, or they make us feel good, or they are ‘no fuss’. Others, however, are not so easy.

This week, continuing your written inventory in your journal of the ‘opportunities to serve’ that you typically encounter, ask yourself who you have served recently. Why did you choose to give yourself to that person? Are they easier to serve than others? Who else might you serve sacrificially? Prayerfully, and creatively, consider whom you will serve.

For further reflection, read Matthew 25:31-46.
