“[Love] does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;” – 1 Corinthians 13:5
To truly understand the power of serving others, we must understand the root and motivation behind it. In Mark 10:43, Jesus is crystal clear about leadership and greatness. He said, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant.
Just like a children’s classroom, we “show and tell” our willingness to love others to the degree that we naturally serve them. I walked to the front of my class as a fourth grade with a rock carve ben centuries of water in the Antarctic. It was a very cool “show and tell.” But that rock didn’t talk, serve, love or impact anybody. It didn’t call someone to action. It simply was a rock! But I do recall the first couple that I had the privilege of leading to Christ. I fell in love with a couple that knew nothing of Jesus and in a matter of twenty minutes they went from knowing nothing of faith to asking Jesus into their hearts. That’s a powerful “show and tell.”
