Be of Service

John 6:27

“Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you.”

So many people work for gaining material possessions, power and prestige. It’s the result of living in a consumeristic society. This philosophy of life is starkly different than the lives of the earliest followers of the risen Christ who worked to make sure everyone in the community was taken care of. Life was not about amassing individual possessions which will all eventually disintegrate. In a couple of hundred years each of our bodies will be dust. Jesus said He would give us what would endure forever. Listen to Him. Allow His words to sink into your soul and open your mind to a deeper truth and a bigger dream. His main message was to love God, neighbor and self. Empty your ego’s desires so God’s desires can fill you. Do this and you will find spiritual riches that flow abundantly now and forever.
