The Heart of a Servant

In the fading evening light, he is out there, mowing the grass and weed-whacking. But he’s not just mowing our grass; he’s also mowing the neighbors’ yard. His selfless heart is clear for everyone to see.

He could be inside, unwinding from a long, emotionally draining week. He could be watching TV or doing absolutely nothing, but he has chosen to be a servant, a servant to his family and to those around him.

He doesn’t have to be. He could focus on himself.

He could do what he wants. But he always chooses to put others above himself.

He is sacrificial with time, gifts, and finances. I have so much to learn from him.

He is a wonderful leader.

He is a clear example of what it means to be the hands and feet of Christ.

How blessed am I to call this man my husband!

How blessed are those little girls who are upstairs watching him from their bedroom window (when they should be sleeping)!

They see it.

They see all the little things he does.

They know he would do anything for anyone.

Even if they don’t realize it, they know how Christians should treat others, just by seeing their dad live his life.

Even in the smallest things, like mowing the grass, we can show Christ’s love and servant-heart.
