Today, a friend of mine asked if I could help him install a dishwasher for another family. So Jeremy and I joined our friend and his son. Actually, we mainly provided “muscle power” – carrying the dishwasher and loosening/tightening where he told us to.
But, serving someone else really was a great way to end the year. I’m trying to remember and learn from what Jesus said, “I desire mercy and not sacrifice.” (Matthew 9:13, 12:7; Hosea 6:6)
I think that would be a good lesson to carry over into the new year.
