Jesus came to pour out His life for the world.  That’s your job too.  He did it by giving unconditional love.  He did it by meeting real human need.  He did what He did in service to His Father.  You serve for the same reason.  This is not drudgery.  This is finding your life.  It is finding meaning.  It is finding personal fulfillment.  Our temptation is to live our life only for ourselves.  This is the door that leads to defeat and emptiness.

“Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few;” Matthew 9:37 (NRSV)
