Lord, thank you for the opportunity we have to serve others today, beginning with our families, our churches and our communities. May we all be committed to making a difference in the lives of others. I’m reminded of the scripture where you challenged us to “Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 2:3-5). More than anything, Lord, I want to be more like Jesus. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
