"A servant's first interest is not in himself but others. Servanthood is a loving choice we make to minister to others." ~ Gayle Erwin

In the recent tragedy of the Boston Marathon bombing, many heroic stories emerged of lives and limbs saved because of bystanders jumping in to help. While thousands fled the scene, there were many first responders (official and otherwise) who actually ran toward the chaos, looking to help however they could.

It reminds us of the Good Samaritan story Jesus told in Luke 10. In the story, two individuals ignored a wounded man lying on the side of the road, but a third traveler chose to help. Jesus asked, "Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man...?" The expert in the law replied, "The one who had mercy on him." Jesus told him, "Go and do likewise." Martin Luther King, Jr. got right to the point when he said: The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: "If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?" But the good Samaritan reversed the question: "If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?"

The challenge for each of us is to remember this question "If I do not stop to help this person, what will happen to him/her?" Jesus told us that loving our neighbor and loving God are the most important commandments. Will we choose to be a first responder or will we let an opportunity to serve pass us by?

Tammy Smith, our girlfriend from Bloom! , an incredible network for church planter's spouses, will be chatting with us this week. Tammy is also the Children's Director of Impact Community Church, and you will be encouraged and better equipped to serve by her story.

Also joining us is Amy Fenton Lee, author of, "Leading a Special Needs Ministry: A Practical Guide to Including Children and Loving Families". Amy says, "And God gives us opportunities to serve Him in what seem to be mundane as well as surprising ways. Every woman can look around and ask herself ‘where is there a need?' In my case, I saw a need for church leaders to have more information that would empower and equip them for better Special Needs inclusion." Don't miss this show!

Desiring to serve and respond,

Galatians 5:13 . . . but through love serve one another
