We have all been created by God to do good works that He prepared in advance for us to do. Today, for me, in 12 hours, included inventorying and organizing 7 tractor trailers, helping prepare thousands of meals, shuffling and repacking a 100 or so pallets of food, and getting 1 splinter. For others it was a day of clearing out mud, chopping up fallen trees, late night showers, and leading people to Christ. At this last point, the person said that seeing 3 led to The Lord "made the whole trip worth it" for him.
It was a great reminder that attitude helps make a difference in what we do. Certainly, being out amongst the people getting to help as a direct point of contact and sharing the gospel is more exhillerating and I hope to get to some of that next week. But in its own way, so is helping behind the scenes. What makes a difference is if you consider what you do is really for an audience of One.
May we be creations that are pleasing to Christ.
Serving through love and laughter is a great way to live.
