Do You Want To Be Great?

Would you like to be a GREAT spouse (or future spouse), co-worker, friend or anything else you can think of?

Jesus told us how, “…whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant.) Matthew 20:26

If we want to be great…we need to serve!

What does this look like?

S = Seek out opportunities to do good for others without expecting ANYTHING in return.  (If we do things for someone b/c we expect something in return then it is not serving, it’s selfishness!)

E = Eliminate the mindset that, “it’s all about me!”

R = Remember the example that JESUS Himself set for us (John 13:1-17) and why He said He came (Matthew 20:28).

V = Value the fact that as we seek to serve others (and not take from them) then we are becoming more like Jesus.

E = Embrace the fact the church will reach way more people in this world through serving them rather than screaming at them.  (This is SO true in EVERY relationship…if you want to be a GREAT spouse, don’t scream at your spouse about what you perceive to be their inadequacies, SERVE them to the best of your ability!  It WILL change things!)
