I have a friend who likes to say, “We are never more like Jesus than when we serve.”
So many of the ladies who reside at the Women’s Mission are on the receiving end of some type of assistance. This past weekend they had the opportunity to give back, as three local churches came together to present the Gospel at the Jackson County Fair. These amazing women got the opportunity to serve others. Some welcomed families, assisting them with their needs, while others put together care packages for the carnival workers.
Just for a moment, their thoughts and concerns did not revolve around their own struggles. They were on the giving end and they were blessing others! This was so very evident as their broadly smiling faces radiated grace, kindness, compassion, and the love of Christ.
I guess it’s true. We’re never more like Jesus than when we serve.
