Finding God by Serving Others

By  Karen O’Connor:

What can you do this season to serve others?

My sister is visiting me for two weeks. She has some physical limitations so it is my joy to help her with anything she can’t do on her own strength. It’s a privilege to prepare her meals, help her with showering, and assist with getting her in and out of the car. These tasks, simple as they may be, are surprising me with joy—because I am finding God in serving another—especially when the ‘other’ is my dear sister.

During this holiday season when we give thanks and share food and gifts and hospitality we have so many opportunities to serve others. Several of my friends have decided to prepare or serve food at soup kitchens around the community where they live. My husband and I did this one year and it was a wonderful heart-warming and humbling experience.

Others are passing out turkeys to families in need or gathering toys for children whose parents may be in the military or in prison. Just thinking about all the ways we can make a difference turns my heart toward God and his generosity to his people.

One of my favorite Bible verses makes this clear:

“My purpose is to give you life in all its fullness” (John 10:10).

A ‘full life’ as I understand it includes pain and pleasure, sadness and joy, serving others and receiving. It is a life of opportunity and what we make of it.

This year may you find God in serving another even as God finds joy in serving you with his love, protection, care, and guidance.

 “And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19 the Bible).

Take a look at this inspiring YouTube video on the importance of ‘serving others’ by Pope Francis.
