What if you asked yourself: how can I best serve my fellow Believers? Even larger, my fellow Humans? What gifts has God blessed you with you can share with them to help them on their spiritual journeys?
Sometimes we can get a bit self-centered with what we want to do in the church. Sometimes we might focus on getting our needs met and feeling fulfilled.
These are subtle traps we fall into that will make us discontent in the Body of Christ.
Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself. Philippians 2:3
What we can bless others with is often something we do we ourselves already find fulfilling. We will be content by doing something we love doing and at the same time we will be encouraging others. This world needs more encouraging, more acceptance, more love.
God is The Creator. He created Creativity and Flexibility. People need you to operate in your gifts. The world needs you too.
If you are part of a church, what can you give to your church family no one else can? And how can you help equip others in the church to give their gifts? How can you make your church a better church? A more vibrant church? A more giving and loving church?
You can't be caught up in yourself or caught up in insecurity and give well. You gotta lay those things down. They will get in the way, as will ambition, jealously, envy, strife, manipulation, greed.
I want to share a site with you of a woman who is giving to the world in a beautiful way. I don't know what her faith is. I don't know much about her at all except that she makes people smile. She makes people happy. Just watching her videos made me smile. http://www.twigthefairy.com/index.php
