Today's reading is Matthew 19-21.
It's been a long day and I'm tired...which sometimes makes me question why I commit to doing the things that I do. But after reading these chapters, God gently reminded me that anything done for His glory is not in vain.
My scripture today was:
For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:28 NLT)
So my answer: I am here to serve...my desire is to be more like Jesus everyday. And I become more like Him when I lay down my life for others...of course, this is a balancing act. But it does bring peace and renewed motivation to help others and be there for them to inspire, equip and serve as God would lead me.
