A Godly woman is a servant

The final part of 1 Timothy 5:10 is “ Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints’ feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work.

Having a servant’s heart is described as one of the greatest indicators of the character of a woman of God.

This verse describes service in three different areas: toward fellow Christians, toward those in need, and in “good works”. Now, this isn’t saying you have to go out and conquer the world.

Instead, brainstorm little ways you can serve – these often become big things to the recipients.

Are you creative? Help beautify the church building or send beautiful cards or crafts to fellow Christians. Are you an amazing cook? Take a meal to a shut-in or struggling young mother. Are you outgoing, or a “talker”? You are perfectly suited for teaching kids and other ladies.

Think about your personal talents and how they are used to help others. When you serve in the areas you are good at, you will enjoy the act of service greatly and be motivated to serve in the future. 

God has a special purpose and plan for your life, and when you use your talents for His glory, you are playing a part in the greatest Story on earth.
