“When ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God.”
Serving others is like spreading sunshine. Jesus served everyone around him. Since we are trying to be like Jesus, we should follow his example and serve others with a happy heart.
Jesus has showed us by example how to serve. Jesus served his apostles by washing their feet. He wanted them to understand that they should serve one another.
As families we can look & pray for those in need of service. We should give as Jesus gives. We should love one another and others and serve with a pure heart just as Jesus does.
Serving others as a family can bring us closer to our Heavenly Father and Savior, and bring us closer as a family.
As we serve those in need and serve our family and our church, in doing so we are also in the service of our God.
I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
