As part of the message, “Embracing the Servant’s Towel”, I invited you to join me in The Great Gamble. This challenge will last for just one week, and then you can go back to your normal life.
What if for the next 7 days we followed this model of Jesus with reckless abandon. Took advantage of every opportunity to serve – even if it seems like something insignificant.
Be the one who opens the door for others.
Chose the back seat of the car so your friend can sit in the front.
Take out the garbage even though it’s not usually your job.
Volunteer to stack the chairs after the meeting.
Open your eyes.
Keep your servant’s towel handy.
And as you do this, monitor the condition of your heart. Ask yourself, “Am I gaining, or losing?” Am I happier or sadder? Am I more fulfilled or less?
And if you want to, try a day or two the other way. Every chance you have, put yourself in the center.
