Chosen Attribute: Serving

Why is this attribute important to you?

I believe in the attribute of Serving. I feel it is important to serve others and to serve your community. God calls us to love Him and love others. To serve others is to love them and shows them God’s love. I like to volunteer my time as a small group leader at our church; The Wesleyan Church of Hamburg. On Wednesday nights, I lead a group of middle-school students in discussions about faith, life, choices, and about ordinary things. I try to be the best role model I can be for these middle school kids. I think that the middle school age is a critical age for kids to seek, grow, and  learn about God. For me as a small group leader, I get to encourage them to have their Faith in God and His Son Jesus.


What is your favorite scripture verse?

"So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you."
Romans 12: 1-2– The Message


This is my favorite verse because ever since I was in middle school and my youth group had a theme for the year to "DEFY" and Romans 12 1-2 was the theme verse. It's stuck with me and I really try to live it out and apply it to my life.
