Exodus 9:13-35
Psalms 22, 141, 143
2 Corinthians 4:1-12
Mark 10:32-45

“Jesus called them together and said, "You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." (Mark 10:42-45)

Today, I had occasion to be in the LINK food pantry. I saw many bags ready for delivery to those in need. I was touched that with every bag at least one person was giving of themselves to help those less fortunate. These days I tend to look a little more closely at what is going on around me. At least weekly I newly learn of people who are finding ways to help others in our church and community. I doubt that any of these people is thinking of this bible verse as they go about helping others, yet here they are……living it. I am continuously humbled by the efforts of those around me who are making it a priority in their busy lives to spread the love of God, and I am thankful for them.
