Wednesday evening and Sunday morning are the best time I spend with my little daughter since I've started working at my new job. I accompany her for Girl Scouts meeting every Wednesday evening and bring her for Sunday School every Sunday morning while I go for Sunday morning service at church if we both don't have other special events (including special family events).
Every first week of every month, the church has program special for children and their parents, called Up Street Family. I love this program. Most of I saw the messages they brought for children were so great, and the parents also could learn from them.
Last Sunday they had theme about "Humility". The special verse they gave was from Matthew 20:20-28 with the main thought: YOU MUST BE A SERVANT. It has deep meaning: It is important to treat others like they're more important than you. Putting others first by giving up what you think you deserve.
Have we done it already in our life? It is not easy to show and apply it in our real life but if we want to and understand of who we are as the special creation of God's hands, that will lead us as a humble person. From this theme, we can learn from what Jesus had done for our sins. He put us first because we are so important to Him. Have we thanked Him for His sacrifice or we just never care for what He had done for us? He doesn't want anything from us. He just wants us to be like Him, putting others first by giving up what we think we deserve. If every of us does it, we will see many loves around the world. We can do it right now, by giving more attentions for our family members. Bring them in every time we pray. Show them how much we care and act as we should be.
This video below will give us a reflection of His sacrifice. Can we do the same thing like Him? I don't hink so, even me, I'm not sure I can do it, either. See, nobody will do it for us, except Him. So, what we're waiting for? Start to act the simple things by saying "Hello" to our isolated neighbor, pray for our husband/wife/mother/father/children/etc who often hurt us or don't care about us, etc.
