Reflect

In this episode, Liz learns what it takes to be a good servant, and also how to treat others who are serving. He learns that he can be a servant to everyone.

Every day and all the time, we decide who we are going to serve. We can choose to serve ourselves first, or we can choose to serve God and others first. When you think about serving others, you look at other people differently. Are they people who can give you stuff, or are they people you can help? When you choose to serve others instead of trying to get them to serve you, you are behaving like Jesus.

Challenge

Think of chores that you do around the house. If you were doing those chores for Jesus, would you do them differently? Would you give a little extra? Would you even do more than is expected? Pick a job that you do around the house to serve your family. When you do that job this week, do a little something extra. After all, you are serving Jesus!
