Service

Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.  - 1 Peter 4:10
 
Finding a way to help others is an expression of faith. It shows that we believe in the sovereignty of God. We don’t’ have to wait until the pain in our life is gone, because we know God can use it for good.
 
Finding a way to help others requires that you ask two questions: What is God doing? and How can I get into the flow of his activity? When we ask these questions, ideas will come. And once we begin doing this, the ‘why is this happening’ question, which once seemed so important, becomes irrelevant. 
 
The best answer to why is always what. When we stop asking, “Why has God allowed this?” And begin asking, “What does he want me to do with it?”, we’re ready for God to start his work in us, and that prepares us for service, and that prepares us for service.
 
“I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.” - Galileo Galilei (1564-1642)
