The Apron of Servanthood

The Babinski Mamas attended the “Apron with an Attitude” seminar to learn about Servanthood given by the Women’s Ministry of Greenhills Christian Fellowship East.

Just to share… and it’s not easy if you do it “alone”. 😦

“So He got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.” John 13:4-5

What is a genuine servant?

She persues love in every way – all the way. Even when we are sad, emotionally down, when things are not going smooth…

Because relationships are more important than goals and activities.

She prioritizes service over status. Towel instead of a Title? An Apron instead of an Approval? Others’ well-being instead of one’s comfort?

Because most of the time we want position, place and power in this world. To belong? To be accepted? Isn’t it that in our hearts we want praises?

She practices supernatural servanthood instead of self-serving leadership and lifestyle.

Because we have a supernatural God! Because we should be tireless servants of God, serving even when no one is looking, doing our best without requiring a “thank you”.

Let’s start with little things… Do you throw your trash in its proper place? Pick up that can that rolled on the floor in the grocery? Obey traffic signs? Visit the sick? The lonely? We’re guilty on some… 😦

Here are some happy pictures…
