Do you take care of all the cooking, cleaning, and other jobs around the house? As a shining model of service, do you just expect your children to follow your example? Yes, you may be blessing your family with your serving, but you also may be depriving THEM of the opportunity to serve the family. Children need to learn the beautiful lesson of serving others.
"The woman who serves unnoticed and un-thanked is a woman who loves God more than she desires the praise of others. She is confident that all her unnoticed deeds on earth are noticed in Heaven. She is satisfied knowing she has pleased her Lord." Read the rest of today’s devotion as we desire God more than the praises of others : http://proverbs31.org/devotions/?p=3040
A brilliant #quote from the #classic How to Win Friends and Influence People. Dale Carnegie consistently argued that the deepest urge in the human hierarchy of needs is the desire to be important. When we tirelessly serve others we place importance on them; we meet this fundamental need that is true for every person. #Influence always begins with honour.
