Yellow Sticky Note

Mark 9:35 Jesus sat down and called the twelve apostles to him. He said, “Whoever wants to be the most important must make others more important than themselves. They must serve everyone else.”

How can we, you and I, live lives that actually matter – that actually make a difference – lives that leave this world a better place for us having been in it for a short time? How?

A few years ago, someone invented those yellow sticky notes. You know the ones. And I, for one, am an addict. I use them to scribble reminders to myself and then a few minutes later throw them in the bin.

I was looking at the ones sitting on my study desk the other day and I thought to myself that they are so convenient and yet so expedient, so disposable. In this minute, something important is scribbled on them, and the next minute they’re in the bin.

Kind of like life, really. One minute we’re here, the next minute (one day) we’ll be gone. That’s it. Just like one of those yellow, sticky notes.

I don’t know about you, but I hope my life counts for more than that. I hope that in this cluttered, busy, disposable world in which we live, as I bump into people, my presence, my life, my having been there will actually have meant something to them. How about you?

I think we all want to make a difference in people’s lives. We all want to leave some lasting legacy in the hearts of the men, women and children whom we touch. But how?

Mark 9:35 Jesus sat down and called the twelve apostles to him. He said, “Whoever wants to be the most important must make others more important than themselves. They must serve everyone else.”

Maybe we have things the wrong way round. Maybe the way for our lives to mean something is to serve others the way Jesus served us.

Whom could you serve that way today?

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
