The weather is hot and we are thankful for the air conditioning we have in our hospital and care facilities. Many homes however in our Valley do not have this and for some of the elderly it might be difficult to survive the heat.

Maybe we do not know or have contact with our neighbors, but we can have a lookout for them, to make sure they are ok. I makes me think of Sunday when during the band concert in the park my music blew on the floor by the wind and my music stand kept swirling around. Someone helped me to gather my music, another stayed close to me to make sure I would not loose it again and someone from the audience even let met borrow her, much sturdier, music stand.

To serve is mentioned many times in the Bible. David tells us in Psalm 100:2 “Serve the Lord with gladness.” Galatians 13:5 tells us to “serve one another in love.”

It does not have to be a big service, as long as it is done with gladness and in love.
