Janet described the distinction between acts of service and servanthood this morning during the devotional service. I think she touched everyone in the room when she described how hard it was when her dog passed away recently. The loss of that relationship was particularly hard, and she felt so much gratitude for the loyalty and love that the dog had showed her over the years. With the appreciation of the dog's love for her, she felt her heart open to the immensity of God's love for us. She wants to be more and more a servant to God. She described servanthood through her statement, "public speaking is right up there with getting a root canal, but for God-- here I am."
