What Servolution Means to Me
For my family, and me Servolution reminds us that we have an opportunity to take what God has blessed us with, whether it is talents, finances, or possessions and use them to be a blessing to others. I try to remind my family that serving is an opportunity, meaning God could have made us puppets or robots to serve but He chose to give us a free will. He wants us to choose freely the serve others out of love for Him.
Another reason for serving along side your children is due to the exponential affect it can have on their lives. It helps model for them what Jesus did on the earth while He was here. He served others constantly. Jesus came to serve not be served and to give His life as a ransom for many. – Matthew 20:28. He gave, so we give.
I love watching my wife and two sons love Christ through serving others. Our children will choose what’s important to them a good deal based on what we model for them as important to us as parents. It’s not what we say as a parent, it’s what we do. What are you modeling for your children as important in your life?
