Something To Consider During Lent

Calling and Service


We initiate service.

Service is when we are doing something for somebody.

The feeling that we have to do something easily causes resentment.

When it is a service chosen by us, we may feel out of control all day.


God initiates calling.

When God calls us to do something, there is a certain sense of peace

about doing it, even if it takes all day, or whatever time it takes.

When we know we are called, the results are all in God’s hands

and we don’t care what happens.

There is no anxiety, no ‘should’s.’

We trust that everything will be okay.
