Ephesians 6:7 ” Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men…”

Last week as I was paging through a very old cookbook of my Mother’s I found this at the bottom of one of the pages:    “There are three types of people:  The few who make things happen, the many who watch things happen, and the majority who have no idea that anything has happened.” Anonymous    And if we look up the Greek words in the Scripture above, it will help us see how true this statement is!   Basically, this verse in Ephesians tells us to serve the interest of others, before ourselves, with a helpful and cheerful attitude.  Well, no wonder it’s only a few that make things happen!  We’re all too selfish.  That’s why the many of us would rather watch others do the serving than do it ourselves.  But it says the majority of us don’t even realize that there’s a need…and that’s sadly true.  The majority of us have our faces planted so far into our phones we miss everything that’s going on around us…countless needs and ways we could serve others go unnoticed and ignored.
