Conviction: Your Thoughts?

In light of yesterday's post, I was hoping that today I could get your input on service and the people who have influenced you through and about service.

As I've said, I have been influenced by my parents, but I haven't talked too much about what service has meant to me, and the things that it has done in my life. Expect that next weekend!

For now, I want to know about you! So leave a comment:
Tell me about a time that service changed the way you thought or felt,
Tell me about someone in your life who has changed the way you see or think about service,
Tell me about the way you think about love and God's plans for us and the world,

Just leave a comment -- I would really love to read about it!


  1. My parents (neither of whom are Christian,) really brought me up with a servant attitude.
    My mom is just obsessed with serving others (it's like, in her DNA, something God created her with upon birth) and my dad really cares for others & is willing to help however he can.

    So it sounds super cheesy, but Jesus changed my heart and how I view service. It's not just about helping others like my parents raised me with (though that is wonderful,) but a chance to actually serve my God :)

  2. Very cool. I think a lot of times there is a connotation that people who aren't Christian are bad people, but I'm sure you would agree with me that it's a crazy idea!
