The Concept of Serving Your Community, Country, the World (esp in the upcoming holidays)

The Concept of Serving Your Community, Country, the World (esp in the upcoming holidays)

This year in our troubles, we have found that many people have found a way to serve each other. Whether that was stuck in a dead end job nobody thought you should strive for when you were in school (ie grocery clerk, health care aides) or as a neighbour checking to see each other had food or a couch to sleep on.

The servers stepped up to help when they were called. They found a way to do what needed to be done. With little fuss, even though they were scared.

And became the tireless heroes.

They never sought positions of glory, fame, money, power. They never thought they deserved more than a decent wage. So they could take care of themselves and their families.

They have put everything on the line , despite the fact they are taken for granted by society, despite the fact they often are from other countries and have been excluded often by the govt. And all the times they have been punched down by their bosses, customers/clients, the govt, sometimes their neighbours… they still pitched in. Even at risk of and sometimes the cost of their lives. (RIP)

Knowing that, I’m going to ask you to make an effort this holiday season to be extra gracious, patient and courteous to these people. If you think you’ve had a long year, imagine theirs. Just for a moment. Please.

“Not to be served, but to serve’. No one is too high to help when someone is in need, and no one too low to be of aid.

Be like Christ, if that is who you claim to believe in.
