Motivation to Serve

It is SO much easier to do what needs to be done for the people around you when you can do it freely and cheerfully. As soon as you're being told to hurry up, or how much people are depending on you, or to do a better job, or to set aside other priorities so as to focus on this-or-that one, it can become paralyzing. That doesn't mean we shouldn't have rules or demands. But boy oh boy, I find myself much more efficient and effective, much more of benefit to my neighbor, when I'm motivated by the gospel than when I'm being cajoled by the law (with all my failures staring me in the face).
