As individual believers, much of our service to God comes automatically as we interact with those we love. Those who work in service related jobs such as nurse, firefighter, teacher, ministry leader, etc. have the added benefit of serving others routinely throughout the day. Nevertheless, we all sometimes need a reminder of the many ways we can serve God one-on-one and how we might expand our efforts to achieve the greatest good. What follows is a small list of some of the many possibilities. My prayer is that you will use this list to inspire your service to God and that you will expand this list to include all of your own special talents and resources.
