Welcome to Dial An Idea for Thursday. I am Rev Rebecca. Todays Idea for Spiritual Contemplation is: How are you serving? I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have south and found how to serve. –Albert Schweitzer
As we enter this joyous time of giving I ask you to remember the best way to stop being obsessed with your own life is to get involved with something outside of you. Service is one of the greatest gifts of love you can give. It is also a way to shift your focus away from your own problems.
Helping others is powerful therapy. Whether it is disturbing gifts, through a toy drive, helping the homeless, visiting an elderly relative, or caring for
abandoned animals. There are many ways to reach outside of your own limited little world. Being of service is a powerful spiritual practice. Service reminds you of your connection with all beings and all life. It puts you in right relationship with the world around you. Your service is a great act of love, a powerful statement and appreciation of our oneness.
My affirmation for today is I am willing to be of service to others. Giving and service bring me great joy.
