I love to serve/help others. Behind the scenes is usually my preference, but it is what I like to do and it is often easy for me to do. This in itself is not a bad thing, but the other day I was challenged during my devotions by this statement from My Utmost For His Highest, "The greatest competitor of true devotion to Jesus is the service we do for Him." Hmmm... I began to ask myself some questions. Is my desire to serve selfish? Am I doing what God wants me to do or what I want to do? Do I serve because it makes me feel better about myself? What is my motivation for serving?
Lord, please help me to take time to "Be still and know that You are God." Help me to sit at your feet instead of always doing, doing, doing.
