Be Jesus’ Servant
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many (Mark 10:45).
Does your LWML group take a break in the summer months? Try a different approach this year. Organize two activities that involve families in service for their community. Start out with a short devotion from the LWML website, and then go out into your neighborhood. Here are some ideas:
- Join together to make a boxed lunch for your local firefighters, police officers, or nurses.
- Pass out popsicles at a laundry mat to children waiting on their parents to finish their clothes and possibly pay for a load or two.
- Take the children to a nursing home to sing VBS or camp songs to the residents.
What would make this different than any other social event? Share the reason you are doing it. Tell the people you are doing it to share the love of Jesus. Be the light. Be a servant.
