We are born with a selfish streak in us. We want what we want and want it now. People tend look out for themselves first. They may ask “what’s in this for me? Or “how does doing this benefit me?”

People are basically selfish. Yet Jesus calls those who follow Him to become servants helping and caring for others. Jesus himself demonstrated being a servant. Loving God means doing what HE asks of us. This includes dying to self and living for Christ by serving people.

Let me ask you, how are you serving others? Imagine how different our world would be if people began putting others ahead of themselves. Jesus even says we must die to ourselves to be his disciple. Then Jesus modeled how to serve others.

What will you do to help someone who cannot return the favor? How will you serve those God brings into your life?
