Today's Good News

NOVEMBER 26 – SERVICE

11/26 1 Thessalonians 2:5-9
Never once did we try to win you with flattery, as you very well know. And God is our witness that we were not just pretending to be your friends so you would give us money! As for praise, we have never asked for it from you or anyone else. As apostles of Christ we certainly had a right to make some demands of you, but we were as gentle among you as a mother feeding and caring for her own children. We loved you so much that we gave you not only God’s Good News but our own lives, too. Don’t you remember, dear brothers and sisters, how hard we worked among you? Night and day we toiled to earn a living so that our expenses would not be a burden to anyone there as we preached God’s Good News among you.
SERVICE
Serve the Lord. Serve Him by serving those around you. When we serve others we are in partnership with the Lord representing Him in the World. Be about the Lord’s business by serving those who live around you.
