To serve not to be served.

Remembering Jesus’ words that we are here to serve and not be served, today’s challenge can be quite difficult for some people, doing a task they really do not want to do.

Act 36: Servant

Do the most unpleasant or scary clean-up job you can think of. That could be literally cleaning something that isn’t particularly pleasant. Or it could be helping someone who you know is drifting from God – not always a nice or easy thing to do.

 Choose how you’ll complete today’s act:

Green:
 Do some literal cleaning. This will work best if you find somewhere that’s personally important to you (like your street) or to your community (like a local school or a care home garden).

Amber:
Most likely, there’s a scenario you’d rather not serve in – today, do it. Do the whole office’s sandwich run. Clean all the sweaty gym equipment.

Red:
 A huge, intimidating, profound act of service: think of a friend or family member who is drifting away from faith. Think about how you might call them back – well and sensitively.
