Last weekend I went with some friends from church to serve at the local Rescue Mission. We served dinner.
The mission serves dinner 6 nights a week to anyone who shows up. The only requirement is that you are in the door by 5 pm, and you sit through the message. Not a sermon, really, but more of a bible devotional or encouragement.
My friends and I passed out drinks, refilled drinks, handed out plates of food, and talked to people.
I often forget how good it feels to serve someone else.
I sometimes get so wrapped up in my own little world that I forget about the blessing of serving others. I get blessed, and I would hope they do too.
Anyway, I am grateful for the opportunity to serve. And I am grateful for the Mission and how they help people on a daily basis.
