You are Invited

Jesus asked a question.

Suppose one of you has a servant ploughing or looking after the sheep. Will he say to the servant when he comes in from the field, ‘Come along now and sit down to eat’? Won’t he rather say ‘Prepare my supper, get yourself ready and wait on me while I eat and drink; after that you may eat and drink?’ Will he thank the servant because he did what he was told to do? So you also when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.’ Luke 17:7-10

Today you are invited to consider what God is saying to you through these words. How do you feel about the work you do for Him? What is your attitude as you serve Him? Do you go the extra mile, or do you just do enough? What would going the extra mile look like? What would it involve? Maybe you do this already. What is God saying to you as a result?

May God bless you with a willing heart and the energy to go the extra mile for Him – always.

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I have moved to the coast and am enjoying the green spaces and beautiful vistas that surround me, reminding me of God's grace every day.
