Day 12- You Gotta Serve Somebody!
Today's Act of Service will give you a glimpse into the world we live in. It will require a bit of bravery on your part. Stop by your local grocery store. Wait until you see someone who may need help carrying their groceries, and then offer to carry some of their bags. Almost certainly you will be told "no." They may look at you with fear and uncertainty. In extreme cases they may even call for help. We live in a world in which random acts of kindness and service are so out of place, so foreign to people, that they strike fear in their hearts. Understand that it is only by living life with a servant's heart that we can change this. Be aware of every opportunity to serve others. Remember Jesus said if you want to be great you must first become a servant. Keep trying and see if anyone will let you carry their bags!
