Follow My Example

ReVerse passage – John 13:3-17 (day four)

“I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.” ― Albert Schweitzer

Schweitzer had obviously read John 13 and recognized the truth of Jesus’ words.  Even though Jesus fully comprehended all that God had given Him, He was willing to give up all of His authority and glory to serve others.  He said it was to be an example to us!  That means that we should do the same…serve others.

How might ‘serving others’ look in our lives?  It could mean a gentleman rising to give his seat to a lady or elderly adult.  It could mean letting the person behind you in line at the grocery store, with only a few items, to go ahead of you when you have a full basket.  Or, it could mean helping with the dishes after a meal at another’s home.  Eyes up and look for ways to follow Jesus’ example!

  1. Thank you for giving examples of every day acts of service that we can all perform! We don’t have to do dramatic things, just live with an attitude of thinking of others and being aware of those around us.
