Finding God's Goodness

Week Fourteen: Fortitude. Service

Month Four: The Virtue of Fortitude. Loving Myself through eyes of Faith produces patience.

In this season of Lent, we are called to pray, fast, and give alms as we prepare our hearts for Easter.  The beauty of service or giving alms is that it makes me think of things outside myself.  It brings me into connection and see the direct impact I can have on another person and the impact they have on me. 

Service brings me into community which is necessary for me to grow. It’s part of the ecosystem of God’s grace and love. It provides me the ability to give back and serve others. It gets me outside myself.

As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

1 Peter 4:10

Lord, help me know my heart and how I can best serve You today.
