Life with Jesus

So I’m the one that takes out the trash in our suite. It has been a weekly struggle for me to do it lovingly and humbly. I continually think, “I’m doing this to please God….but they would even lift a finger or acknowledge that I do this every time the trash is full.” That’s not true service. True service doesn’t say “Well, I’m doing this to be better than them. To “serve” them so they owe me something.” I should be the first one to jump on taking out the three smelly bags of trash that other people fill up (which I am) but I shouldn’t do it thinking, “They won’t even say thank you.” I should do it saying, “I love them and they’re worth this smelly trash.”  Oh goodness, this is hard.
