Trust (3)

Every person wants to be happy and enjoy themselves. Sometimes we make a good choice in doing something that we enjoy — like going for a walk or riding a bicycle. Other times we may make a bad choice — like eating too much chocolate candy! As Christians, our true enjoyment should come from serving God. If we do that, God will bless us here on earth. And, we will also have the blessing of living forever with Him.

The writer of Psalm 37:4-5 talks about enjoying life. “Enjoy serving the Lord, and he will give you whatever you ask for. Depend on the Lord. Trust in him, and he will help you.” We can truly enjoy ourselves when we are serving God.

What are some ways we can serve God today? We can show kindness to a friend, be patient with our children, take care of an elderly person, give food to the needy or visit someone in prison. We can also spend our time praying for people who are sick or people who need to love and follow Jesus.

As you are working, shopping or playing today, look for ways to help other people. Trust God to show you how you can serve Him best today.
