I’m learning to serve. I want to stop walking by needs. I want to stop feeling a little sad because of someone’s situation and then to keep on going with my day, my plan. I want my daily plans to be anchored to serving and not to getting-it-done.
But we live in a world of getting-it-done.Frankly, I’m quite efficient with my day.
I don’t want efficiency.
I want meaning.
So I’m learning to see where I can serve. I’m learning to listen more. I’m learning when I do less I reach more significant needs. I’m able to touch lives in meaningful ways. It seems counterproductive.
It’s not though, rather it’s the way of Love. When I can push past my task list and be motivated by love, I have a new strength in my heart that is powerful.
This is what propels me to serve.
