I serve in love for I am a labourer in God's service

There is much work to do for God in this world. Are we doing our share, you and I? Or do we think it sufficient if we work for ourselves and our families? We should remember that we have a duty to the community in which we live, the State, or our neighbours, according to our capabilities. We should not be so wrapped up in our own affairs that we have no time to spare for the good of others.
What we shall do each must decide for himself, but it should be the thing that we do best. Only our best is good enough to give to God. And we serve Him through service to His children.
The farmer, if he works with love of the beasts of the field and the earth and the things that grow in it, is offering a gift to God. Anything done in love can be laid on His altar. We cannot all be preachers or Truth teachers for the world must be kept going, but we can all serve in some way. Let us see that we do it.
