Are you willing to serve?
Not too long ago I received an email from the Men's Ministry leader at my church. He was asking for help to help another family that goes to our church. Actually, they are fairly new to the church. Anyhow, this family was moving from one apartment to another. The move happened this past Sunday. Believe it or not, I actually had fun. I got to help someone that needed the help and I also got to meet a few new people and hang out with Lonnie too. I am always willing to serve others. I have spoke in the past about teaching. I hate it, and don't really have a desire to "teach". But I am willing to serve in other ways.
Now onto the funny part...
When Lonnie took me back to my car yesterday after we were done with the move, I told him that I actually had fun because I was serving somebody. Well I guess God heard that. Today, my wife Patty asked me if I could help a co-worker of hers move this coming Saturday. She is going through a divorce. I couldn't help but laugh on the inside. But I am going to do it, and with a smile too. The only thing I asked was whether or not she was renting a Uhaul or not. She is. That's a plus, because the move this past weekend was a lot tougher because we used two pick-ups and a car.
Also this week I am moving one of my stations up in Globe Arizona. I guess I won't need to be doing much weight lifting at the gym this week. I'll just stick to the cardio.
Speaking of cardio, I have decided to run in The Valley of the Sun Half Marathon on March 8th. I will start my "official" 12 week training plan on December 15th.
Have you served someone today? Are you planning on serving someone soon? Do it! It will make you feel good and it is something nice that helps somebody else out.
