As I settle in to my office with Gina at Trinity School, I am suddenly aware of a whole new level of Matthew 25. Being a Trinity graduate, I am struck by the level of sacrifice that I was not aware of as a student. The teachers and administrative staff of the school are simply laying down their lives for the students. In addition to that, I marvel at parents who spend their free evenings watching their children play sports, helping out with homework, dropping kids off, picking them up, and often for someone else's children as well as their own.
It's the small services and sacrifices that I'm working hard to notice. It's my household members speaking up quickly when someone needs to be relieved of their cooking duties, dropping each other off at the airport at early hours, and texting how their work is going in the middle of the day.
Barry calls it, "Taking action for the sake of others" and there are innumerable ways to take action for the sake of the kingdom of God. I'm grateful to the Lord for all those around me who are working hard to take action. It's definitely showing!
