INTERNALLY NURTURING

EXTERNALLY SERVING

 Here’s my sermon title:

  “There’s something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.”  These are Fred Rogers’ words.

The Scripture lesson is Luke 17:5-10

The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!”

The Lord replied, “If you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, “Be uprooted and planted in the sea,” and it would obey you.

“Would any of you say to your servant, who had just come in from the field after plowing or tending sheep, ‘Come!  Sit down for dinner’?  Wouldn’t you say instead, ‘Fix my dinner.  Put on the clothes of a table servant and wait on me while I eat and drink.  After that, you can eat and drink’?  You won’t thank the servant because the servant did what you asked, will you?  In the same way, when you have done everything required of you, you should say, ‘We servants deserve no special praise.  We have only done our duty.’”

REMEMBER the Christmas Child project.
