“Use all your potential for service to others, or it dries up.”
In our day-to-day life, we are often cautious and afraid to be totally present. What is holding us back? Jesus offers us the fullness of life right where we are! He comes to us through the people we encounter every day.
The world’s standards and those of God’s kingdom differ. Can you and your family think of some examples? Discuss how each of you can better serve each other.
Jesus was totally present … ready and willing to use His full potential to serve others … not to receive but to give. My friends, with Jesus as our example, I pray you find the joy and fullness of life by doing the same.
