I think we get caught up in the magic of serving others and how it blesses our own lives 9and for sure the lives of others). Serving others is what the Savior did and so it helps us become like Him, right? Absolutely. This is totally and completely true and I am 100% supportive of giving service in whatever small and big ways we can for many different reasons. HOWEVER. Giving service is not the only way we can become more Christlike. Receiving service for many is difficult, but still an important part of our own path to discipleship. In this video I share a profound experience when I was told firmly to accept the service offered, not because I needed it, but because the Savior wanted it.
