Serving others with your God given abilities.

This is my friend Mary Pat.  She is a physical therapist with many

 specialized abilities to help people live a healthier and happier life. 

 She is giving her knowledge and exercise training to any who want to

 attend this relaxercise class in Wesley Heights United Methodist

Church fellowship hall.

We received excellent information, warm up exercises, and our

assignment is to focus on balancing exercises.

This servant has spent her years in school, training, working, …. and

she also gives of her time and expertise in this special class expecting

nothing in return.

 

This is just one of the ways Mary Pat has extended her   service to

others outside of the realm of her working hours,expecting nothing in

return.

Mary Pat reminds me of this verse which God impressed on me in

 1972 when I was on my first mission trip.

 

Give, and it will be given to you.  A good measure, pressed down,

 shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.  For

 with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.  Luke 6:38

 

It’s been 40 wonderful years since then and I’ve seen this verse acted

 out in so many people and situations that it would take days to share

 them with you.  The truly sincere heart, giving of themselves, always

 seems to receive more blessings than they can ever give away.  These

 servants are giving with NO intentions of receiving but God just

 pours out the blessings on his faithful servants.

 

A challenge would be to consider your skills, talents, hobbies and find

 a place and time to share them with others.
