Best (Part Four)
Help us to be the best Christians we can be.
Help us to be the best followers of Christ we can be.
But don’t let us think about it too much.
Don’t let us be motivated by trying to be the best.
Except when it comes to service, that is.
Help us to do everything we can do to be the best servants we can be.
But don’t let us think about it in terms of being the best;
let us think about it in terms of serving you by serving others.
Help us to be the best we can be at being servants.
Help us to do our best
to put others first,
to give ourselves away, and
to defend and help the powerless.
But we can't be and do our best on our own.
So fill us up with your best love so we can live our best lives.
