Great to God

To be great to God,

the last shall be first.

They who choose to serve,

and quench those who thirst.

If one is in need,

do we walk on by?

Pretend we don’t see,

turn away blind eye?

Jesus heard every

cry out for His touch.

Great His compassion,

He healed and loved much.

We ought not to be,

concerned with our clout;

but do we obey,

choose to trust and not doubt?

He does worry not,

of status nor fame;

instead it’s our walk,

what’s done in His Name.

May we choose wisely,

and learn to serve well.

Let our life’s story,

of His goodness tell.

(Responding to Matthew 20:20-26)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that though You are the King of all creation, You chose to step down and clothe Yourself in humanity so that we would have a way to come before You, and know You, as we are known by You.  Thank You for Your sacrifice, that exchanged Your life for ours.  Forgive us for turning a blind eye to the needs around us, and help us to be ever listening and open to what You would have for us to do.  Thank You Jesus, that You modeled what it means to love without limits, to serve without concern for supply, and to trust God, because He is always good.  Teach us to trust, love and serve as You did, and may many come to know You as a result.  All glory and honor to You, God.  Amen.

    • Thanks Mom. You taught me well, and pointed me in the direction that developed a deep drive within to learn and grow in Him, from an early age. Love you! xoxo

  2. Amen! What an awesome God we serve! “Give praise to the Lord, proclaim His name; make known among the nations what He has done” (Psalm 105:1).

  3. I so love that I’m now a God-story–redemption and Joy, there’s nothing better! God bless you abundantly–love, sis Caddo
