Service is Greatness

These pictures of a precious big brother and little sister make me think of lending a hand and service, challenging and spurring me on in following Christ's example of true greatness!
May you, too, be blessed by these quotes and verses.
We should always look upon ourselves as God's servants, placed in God's world, to do his work; and accordingly labour faithfully for him; not with a design to grow rich and great, but to glorify God, and do all the good we possibly can." -David Brainard
"The real test of a saint is not one's willingness to preach the gospel, but one's willingness to do something like washing the disciples' feet - that is, being willing to do those things that seem unimportant in human estimation but count as everything to God." -Oswald Chambers

"He that is GREATEST among you shall be servant of all." {Matthew 23:11}
"What think we of Christ? Is He altogether glorious in our eyes, and precious to our hearts? May Christ be our joy, our confidence, our all. May we daily be made more like to Him, and more devoted to His service." -Matthew Henry

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work!" {2 Corinthians 9:8}
