What if followers of Jesus were so active and involved in their community – not just their church – that the community recognized their service? Hamo’s wife – posting a guest post at “Backyard Missionary” – says that this very thing has happened to her husband in a post called “The Wife’s First Post“. She says that their community recently recognized her husband for his service to the community.
Shouldn’t it be the case in each of our communities and neighborhoods that followers of Jesus – that would be us – would be considered the servants in our area? While we should not work with and for our neighbors in order to be recognized, they should see our good works, right? I have to admit that I would not be recognized for my community service.
