fundamental fridays: service

Hey, there! Ecstatic. Excited. Nervous. Ready. Those are just a few words that can describe me as I begin this new series. I truly hope that you can take something away from these Friday posts or just pocket it for later!

This is the first post of FUNDAMENTAL FRIDAYS! (In case you missed my last post on this new, amazing series check it out here: fundamental friday )

So, every Friday we’re going to talk about some of my/your fundamentals (comment below what some of your fundamentals are so I can be sure to include them on a Friday).!

Today’s fundamental is SERVICE.  I wanted to start off with service because one of my main goals/aspirations is to be a servant-leader. My slice of the internet, Courageously Concerned, is set to serve others as well.

SERVING  is the first fundamental.

This summer I have started to really figure out what I want to do in my life and with my life. I feel that God has placed this on my heart.

Simply put, I want to be a servant-leader in whatever capacity God needs me. I want to serve my (and other’s) communities. Impacting change is what I plan to do. Serving ALL of God’s people is what I plan to do.

This summer’s theme has truly been a theme of service for me. I have a wonderful internship with a non-profit that is allowing me to serve children (and adults) in my community. I have had the opportunity to refine my service skills, which ultimately helps me become a better leader.


I chose this to be the first fundamental because there is a reason servant comes before leader in servant-leader.  In order to be a great leader, you must be willing to serve the people around you. You must be like Jesus and wash the feet of the people around you: John 13:1-17

Everyone has something to offer. We are fearfully and wonderfully made. It might take some time to find your God-given gifts/talents and passions, but when you do make sure you pour back into the people around you.

Today’s fundamental has been SERVICE. 

I hope my little two cents has inspired you, motivated you, made you think, or made you realize you have something to offer the world!

Please don’t forget to comment, tell me what you think about service, what’s your God-given talent/gift?  What do you have to offer? What’s one of your fundamentals?

Go be great today!

Keep Glowing,
