As we finish up our final week of Basic Training, learning how to love to serve, remember all the things we learned so far about serving others and putting them first rather than it always being about us.
There is no greater example than Jesus Himself when He said in Matt 20:26-28,
“Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave- Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Learning now, at an early age, to put others first will give you a firm foundation later in life to always think of others before yourself. As we learned from experience this summer: the feeling you get when you put others first is satisfying and an encouragement to us and all those around us!
