Thought for Today
Love and Service
“And Jacob loved Rachel; and said,
I will serve thee seven years for Rachel
thy younger daughter”
Love is the fountain from which true service unto the Lord flows. It is to be the inspiration for all of our actions. A river flows regardless of external things. When love is the source, service unto God is the natural flow of life. The work of God can only be accomplished by the love of God. Love robs the flesh of boasting of its accomplishments. It brings all things unto the worship of God rather than the promotion of self. Our service becomes an offering unto Him; our reward is His Joy welling up within. It is the feast of life to love and serve our God.
“And Jacob served seven years for Rachel;
and they seemed unto him but a few days,
for the love he had to her.”
