Today we are going to be discussing the blessing of serving others. Galatians 6:10 tells us to do good to everyone specifically mentioning those in the house of faith.
Now, what exactly does that mean? Doing good to others is very straightforward, it can be you helping your friend with their homework, giving clothes to people in need, maybe even assisting your teacher as they clean up the classroom.
Those are all good examples of ways to serve others and be a blessing in your day to day life. Lets move on to the meaning of the household of faith. The following is a
quote from compellingtruth.org,“The concept of a household also alludes to
the way believers function together as a communal body.” Often times Christians are referred to as the Body of Christ and the actual word Christian means “one who professes belief in the teachings of Jesus Christ” (Merriam Webster Dictionary).
What does the Bible say about serving others and it being a blessing?
God sees and knows all, meaning He won’t forget your acts of service and hard work and you’ll surely be rewarded in time. The
point of serving others should not be for your own personal gain but from the
kindness of your heart with pure intentions. “He who has clean hands and a
pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false and does not swear
deceitfully. He will receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the
God of his salvation”(Psalm 24:4-5).
Being a blessing to others could
just be giving someone a compliment and making them smile. The Bible tells
us to encourage each other (Romans 15:2).
Overall, this writing is meant to encourage you to be a blessing and serve others as well as to encourage people around you. They could be going through something and you being of service or giving them affirming words might just turn their day around!

Appreciate this reminder that the Bible actually instructs us to encourage others. It’s not just a suggestion but more along the lines of a commandment.
I love your statement in that “The point of serving others should not be for your own personal gain but from the kindness of your heart with pure intentions.”
Yess God! Purify our hearts and from that place, let us truly serve one another! There is peace in that posture 🙏🏾💕😊
