‘Give me love in my heart keep me serving…’. This line of a hymn has been going around in my mind today. It can be a joy to serve, especially if you feel appreciated and valued. After all Jesus came not to be served but to serve, and it is a privilege to follow him.
But if the service is hard and unrewarding, or if I’m feeling tired or sad, then it is necessary to dig deep to find that love. And a prayer helps, ‘give me love in my heart keep me serving’.
