In the Bible, in Matthew 20:28 we are told ‘the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve.’ I have believed that I too am called to serve. But things have changed, I can no longer serve in the way I have done in the past. No more can I entertain with generous meals. i don’t hold any particular role in the church. Instead of being the driver, I am the driven.

But all these things don’t mean I can’t serve, it doesn’t mean I can’t help others. It’s just that my service takes a different form. I can sometimes pour oil on troubled waters. My job now it to listen and not always lead and talk. I praise God that each morning I wake eager to see what adventures I will have with God on that day. After all a Christian never retires.
