It’s _____ ONE ANOTHER WEEK here on GUWG where all week long we’re looking at how the Bible says we should fill in that blank.

Today’s word? SERVE. Here’s our key verse:

The ancient Bible-y word for “serve” in this verse was douleuo, which actually means “performing the duties of a slave.” In other words, we’re called to put others’ needs way way waaaaaay above our own.
