Fed By Serving

I read this the other day. The story of Jesus talking to the Samaritan woman at the well is a popular one, but these few verses aren't emphasized very often.

John 4:31-34 ~ Meanwhile, His followers were begging Him, “Teacher, eat something.”
But Jesus answered, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.”
So the followers asked themselves, “Did somebody already bring Him food?”
Jesus said, “My food is to do what the One who sent Me wants Me to do and to finish His work. (NCV)

What if we viewed serving as food? As something that actually fed our souls? It does. Many people, even those who do not know God, feel good and possibly even "satisfied" after helping someone. What if we were to harness that just a little more and look at serving God as our true "Daily Bread."

Just something to think about...
