as i went through this past weeks devotional, some of the things that have been on my mind are love, selflessness, and respect. jesus shows us that we need to follow his example and exercise these characteristics in our lives and as we serve. we are serving for christ and his kingdom, for his glory. we are imitating christ by selflessly loving those around us, but we need him to do that. we need to surrender and obey. reckless servanthood.
i was also reminded of loving unconditionally. even though it maybe hard, we are to love and share christ with all of the campers we come into contact with. sometimes that can be hard, and some are not easy to love, but often those are the ones that need it the most.
wednesdays devo was so challenging. are we shining as brightly as we could? are we looking only to the lord to satisfy? may we only look to him to fill us up, and his character will be evident to all.
i couldn't help but think of a song that we would sometimes sing last summer, called the blessed light. it talks about the lord being the sun and us being the moon. we merely reflect the light that comes from him.
