Week 1: Serving those closest to you.

I LOVE THIS CLIP it reminds me so much of understanding the beginnings of the relationships and roles between men and women. Much of this I agree with, however over time, some of it has changed as I have come into a deeper understanding of my role as a wife, from a Godly perspective. Watch!


I remember my husband being so shocked that I served his plate while we were dating. Then later I remember my mother being shocked that I didn't make his plate while at a family function- my response was he know's what he wants to put on his plate better than me (especially when we're eating someone else's cooking). Both parties had a different perspective on service and the value of it.


Service is a huge conversation: who should do it, when they should, and how they should, are all elements of the thoughtfulness, style, and tone, that a servants heart should embody. For me, it comes from a place of honor and respect for the person that I am serving. It also comes from a head space, that desires to show the recipient that there is a love and care for them. I feel more encouraged to serve when the recipient has reciprocated that service when needed.


Service should not include neck circling, eye rolling, or finger flipping....that would be serving grudgingly. No one benefits or is blessed by serving in this manor. If you reference the scriptures in Phillippians 2: 13-16 NLT, "God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. Do everything without complaining and arguing, so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights ...Hold firmly to the word of life, then...I will be proud that I did not run the race in vain and that my work was not useless."
