Colossians 3:23

23Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. 

My personal study time has been primarily dedicated to studying servant hood and discipleship. In the beginning my biggest struggle was serving people. Ever notice how children pick up on the word "mine". We have to teach our children how to share, we have to teach our youth how to be considerate or conscious of others. This is because in our culture selfishness is taught and idolized. We have selfies and selfie sticks.  We let everything everyone says dictate our attitude. Why? Because it is all about us.

However, this is what makes things interesting. God wants us to understand, it takes a sacrifice to spread the Great Commission and to change this world. "...with all your heart" can be defined as the human soul, life, self, or the vital breath of life.  When you give your soul to serve it is not to any human being ... it is to honor the gift inside them. The gift that God has formed inside. This is a sacrifice ... a willing sacrifice. Meaning this is done out of pure Godly love.  Truly serving is not done forcibly, or out of necessity, there is no murmurs, just from the heart with good intentions.  So serve with all of your heart and because of your sacrifice the God will will reward you.  Truth be told you can turn around a sour relationship by serving each other. Identify a person in your life that would benefit from being served and watch God move in both your lives.
