Everyone Can Be Great

Every day is an opportunity for you to use your gifts to serve others.


[MUSIC PLAYING] Dr. Martin Luther King said, everyone can be great because everyone can serve. That is so true. We have a wonderful opportunity to do the good works that God planned for us long ago as we read in Ephesians chapter 2 verse 10. 

When I think of the word serve. I like to break it down in the following way. S, seek to find a need that you can meet. E, every day do a good deed unto others. R, remember that Jesus showed us the way through his service in the world. And V, volunteer, volunteer your time now in an organization or at a church or a place where you’d need it most. And E, exalt the Lord through your service. 

When we serve others, we serve the Lord. When we serve others, others really serve us by the way they give back to us. So remember, every day you can be great because every day you can serve someone.
