Loving and Giving Father, we come to You today to thank You for giving us a servants heart. Let us give to others in a manner that pleases You, and gives all the glory to You. Never let us give for personal recognition or glory. All the glory goes to You Father. You have blessed us so abundantly let us freely help others and show the heart of a true Christian. Guide us to those we can serve and never expect anything in return. Praying in the name of the greatest servant, Jesus Christ. Amen

Thank you father for showing us how to give when you gave your son Jesus Christ. Help me to give unselfishly and not out of compulsion. Help me realize daily that I am who I am because you gave me life in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Amen... I love to's simply in my heart. I sometimes would get frustrated because I would never get anything in return but God showed me that it was who he made me to be and he would take care of me so I didn't need to get anything in return for the things that I give . I guess I just need to be obedient to what he was telling me me to do. now I give freely I actually love to give and I love to be a service to others it warms my heart and it makes me feel like I'm being obedient to my father.

DAY 166: The Heart of a Servant

 “Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.  “So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.  But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.  Matthew 6: 1-4

There is a difference between doing a good deed and serving in the name of God. It's a fine line. We do not serve others in order that we might receive a special blessing. God does not operate a karma wheel.  

When you give or serve because you are "supposed to do it",  then you are working to please others or maybe even yourself instead of desiring to please God.

When you get the heart right, the service God exepects of us will follow naturally.  This type of service is a fruit of walking in God's spirit.
