Sometimes, we doubt that we have the ability to do good and make a difference in our world. This passage says otherwise. Each of us was created for good works, and God has already provided them for us. Christ followers are hard wired for service and compassion for others. We are here to make a difference.
Questions for further thought:
1. Which issues, groups or individuals do you feel a particular concern for?
2. Think of service experiences in your past that have brought you particular satisfaction. What does that tell you about your serving DNA?
Challenge: Take a look at your everyday life (pre-COVID). Do you have space in your schedule to serve? Or, what are the service opportunities that exist in connection with the things you are already doing?
