Serving Loved Ones Is Serving the Kingdom

Today’s Featured Post

Today’s featured post is by Suzette, How to Serve with a Smile Even When You Don’t Feel Like It.

If you are or have been a caregiver, you’ll relate to Suzette’s situation. She’s in the sandwich generation, taking care of her 91-year-old mother, her sister with Down’s syndrome, and a child at home.

Suzette writes,

“One day, my mom will not be here to hold my hand, or pray for me, and me for her. Why is it so hard to live in the moment? To enjoy a conversation or just spend time together?”

Time is short and things have to get done. Yet Suzette realizes this truth that we all need to remind ourselves of, whatever our season in life:

“God gave each of us certain gifts to serve the Kingdom. Caregivers, we must remember that serving our loved ones is serving the Kingdom and God will provide what you need to do it in love.”

I encourage you to read her post and be encouraged yourself.

    Much of this resonated with me. I still wrestle with guilt from our caregiving years–guilt that I often resented it and didn’t serve with love as I should. I’ve given that to the Lord and try to let the experience help me be more caring an others-focused.

      You showed so much love for your m-i-l in your tender care of her, Barbara. I’m sure it’s impossible for anyone but Jesus to maintain a “happy” attitude about it all the time, but your actions proved your love. I was always inspired by what you did.
