A Weekend of Serving

One of my Christmas gifts this week was this beautiful scraper. I can't imagine ever actually using it (with the chance of ruining it), so it will be displayed in a corner where I can always see it.

Why would I want to look at a scraper? As pretty as it is, it's because I want to remember the verse that's on it.

Serve the Lord with gladness is part of the 100th Psalm.

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

These are the words I want to remember during the last weekend of the year. It's not about me. It's not about my schedule, my plan or my wishes. It's about doing whatever it takes to serve the Lord. Whole-heartedly and with complete abandon. In whatever ways He asks.

Make this a weekend of serving. Serving the Lord. Serving your family. Serving your church. What better way to wrap up the old year and prepare to bring in a new year?
