The other night my husband, son and I went to a Thanksgiving dinner that was offered free to our town by a local church. It’s a big yearly thing for them and most of their church members turned out to help prepare food, dish up plates, wash dishes and clean up.
The interesting thing was how happy all the servers were. They were having a blast serving friends, family and strangers (who hopefully wouldn’t be strangers for long). It’s amazing how working shoulder to shoulder can build the sense of friendship and belonging.
Why not find a way to serve others this holiday season? Grab your sweetie and dish up food, deliver gifts, offer transportation, etc. This time of year offers plenty of opportunities for volunteering. Serve others and build your marriage too!
… be ready for every good deed. Titus 3:1b NAS
