"But the boy [Samuel] ministered to the Lord..." 1 Samuel 2:11
I was reading 1 Samuel yesterday and this verse stayed with me. I tend to forget what a blessing I can be to the Lord. I so often think of how He blesses me and how grateful I am for the way He ministers to me (through the Word, other Christians, etc.), that I rarely stop to realize exactly how much of a joy and blessing I am to Him. How cool is that?!
Of course, it makes me take stock of my thoughts and behaviors to realize I could definitely be more of a blessing than I probably am (to be more Christ-like, in other words). How humbling is that?!
Just some thoughts to think about...
