Serving Within the Home

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve…”(MT 28:20)unnamed-2Beautiful.Although, it doesn’t feel beautiful changing the 5th diaper of the day, cleaning up constant messes, carpooling to 20 places, or breaking up another sibling fight (while folding laundry), THAT is the definition of beautiful- doing it, day after day, minute after minute, and not giving up, despite times of monotony or frustration. Just as Jesus came to serve, let’s try to be examples to our kids of what it looks like to serve one another even when we don’t feel like it, so they can do the same. What’s a way you have your child help within your home? Do you use a chore chart, marble jar, or another idea? We’d love to hear!
