Love, Serve, Repeat

What a blessing it is to serve others. Helping someone else is the closest we will ever get to serving God. We are all His little children and He wants us to help each other. Imagine how much greater our lives could be if we were always ready to help someone else. 

When we can adapt the my-life-is-not-just-about-me mindset, then our lives will be more joyful. Jesus served the people. At one point, He even washed the disciples’ feet. He left us an example of how He wants us to act. Keeping score and expecting people to help us because we helped them is not serving. That is doing business. And it causes us to get our feelings hurt. Especially when we expect people to treat us as we have treated them. 

If we truly serve others from our heart, however, and love them unconditionally, then they won’t have the power to hurt us. Because we will have no expectations of them. Even if they reject our love and help, then it won’t hurt us. In that type of situation, we would just love and release them. 

The devil is the one who tries to put restrictions on our love and generosity. We need, however, to learn how to love freely and unconditionally. Then we would have an opportunity to make a difference in the world. Let’s start today. 

Today let’s take every opportunity that we can find to help someone else. Even the smallest gesture counts. If we all commit to doing this, can you imagine how much better our world will be?

Love and blessings,


Candida
