Bible Verses About Helping Others

One of the key Bible verses on serving is Luke 4:8 where Jesus says we are to worship and serve God only.

He says the source of the command is God’s written word. Serving others flows from serving God.

We are to serve others with all our heart as if serving the Lord and not people (Ephesians 6:7).

We serve under authority figures who assign us duties yet we are to work as though God is the one instructing us.

Service demands excellence. If you serve with skill and diligence, you will serve before kings and not obscure men (Proverbs 22:29).

When you serve others with excellence, they prefer to work with you because they know you are dependable and reliable.

The world has exalted making money above serving God. People give up serving God when they see there is no monetary reward.

Yet God’s word says we can’t serve two masters, that is, money and God (Luke 16:13).

Render your service to others within the context of God’s word not the world’s standards.

God tells us in His word in Joshua 24:14 that we should serve Him with faithfulness.

When God sends you to serve others, the situation on the ground may be uncomfortable and unexpected. 

Yet He needs you to get the job done. Being faithful to God keeps you going when you can’t find another reason to stay.

Remember that God honors and rewards those who serve Him.

Ask Him where He wants you to serve today.
