My dad’s favorite way to teach is by example. If you’ve ever worked with him, you know this to be true. I learned at an early age that to understand his skills and his wisdom, I must follow him closely, paying attention to the great detail he puts into each task he accomplishes. Through this, I have learned to anticipate his next steps and now we make a great team!
26 Anyone who wants to serve me must follow me, because my servants must be where I am. And the Father will honor anyone who serves me.
Learning from my dad has been a great example in learning how to follow Jesus and serve others. When it is easy to rush ahead with our own plans and desires, the best way to learn from Him is to do exactly as this verse instructs. We must follow closely and pay attention to where His is working. This is how we can honor Him. This week pay attention to where God is working in the lives of others. Look for opportunities to join this work and serve someone you encounter along the way.
