Sometimes you hold back from giving yourself completely and really putting your heart into it because you are afraid of getting hurt. Maybe your gift was misinterpreted in the past or wasn’t received the way you hoped it would.
So you hold back.
You don’t put your heart into it.
You just do the bare minimum.
You justify not serving because you think, “well, they won’t even appreciate it anyway”.
But you are not made to live half- hearted. You are not given gifts to only give them halfway or with conditions.
Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, (Ephesians 6:7 NIV)
You have been created to live wholehearted and to serve wholehearted.
How? By knowing that you are really serving The Lord, not people.
That EVERYTIME you are putting your heart out there in service it is for God, not for a thank you from someone.
How is your serve?
Is it half hearted?
Know who you are really serving, then let go of your fear and go for it!
