“Therefore say, I am giving him my covenant of shalom, making a covenant with him and his descendants after him that the office of Cohen will be theirs forever. This is because he was zealous on behalf of his God and made atonement for the people of Israel.”
Numbers 25:12-13 CJB

“Yes, indeed! I tell you, a slave is not greater than his master, nor is an emissary greater than the one who sent him.”
John 13:16 CJB
Jesus came to serve and so should we. The world around us is filled with all kinds of weirdness. We as, believers, need to look for opportunities to step in and serve! Don’t wait for someone else. If you see a need to serve then serve! Have a blessed day.
