Theme Verse

If you haven't noticed by now, in our sub-heading we have the reference to a Bible verse. This is our theme verse. I thought I'd share with you why we chose it. Mark 10:45 says, " 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." Now, we can't very well give our lives as a ransom for many because we are not Jesus Christ, the perfect sinless sacrifice. But we can decide to serve and not to be served. If you have the choice this week between doing something for someone else and having someone else do something for you, choose to serve the other person. Jesus showed this attitude of servanthood by washing his disciples' feet and in many other ways. We don't have to go around washing our best friends' feet, but we can serve others to make their lives a little easier. So just take the time to step up and do something nice to help another person this week.

In Service to the King,
