Needs Vs. Service in the Church

“When we serve one another, we carry one another’s burdens in practical ways. We get our hands dirty as we come alongside people and pay attention to the details of their lives. If our professed commitment to Jesus does not lead us to resemble him in our actions, then we are mocking him and not representing him accurately to the world. When you think about your relationships, how many of them ultimately revolve around making sure your concerns are heard and your self-defined “needs” are met?” -Tim Lane and Paul Tripp, Relationships: A Mess Worth Making
