In Galatians 5:13-14, Paul says, “For you, brothers, were called to freedom; but do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh. Rather, serve one another humbly in love. The entire Law is fulfilled in a single decree: Love your neighbor as yourself.” Every day we have a choice - to die to ourselves or live by our desires. Our hearts can become corrupted when we start giving with the expectation of what we will receive. What happens when the equation doesn’t balance out and the reward from our hard work never comes? We feel cheated, resentful, and begin to hold back the love that was freely given to us.
C.S. Lewis once said, “Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it's thinking of yourself less.”
Consider others above yourself and remember that in everything, serve as though you are working for the Lord. A servant’s heart comes from receiving His love and giving it away. Our Father’s kingdom is one that never runs dry.
