Serving with God's Strength

Serving others is a remedy for your own problems. Joe Wilson, according to the Kansas City Star, learned his wife was leaving him. Later that day he saw a homeless man with a walker, and says God urged him to help.
Wilson picked up Jesse Sanchez. He became determined to reunite Jesse with his family. After days of research, Wilson drove Jesse from Texas to Kansas City where they found Jesse's brother.
Joe Wilson understands 1 Peter 4:11, "If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ."
Joe may not have changed his circumstances, but he certainly improved his outlook. If you're struggling today, look around your workplace and see who you can serve.
