A few weeks ago I attended stake conference. One thing that stuck with me is that service is inconvenient. I have found this to be true, for the most part. It's redeeming qualities (very rewarding and brings joy to your life) make it worthwhile.
My friend needed a ride today. I was planning on getting stuff done during the time it took me to pick her up, but that stuff can wait. It was good talking to her and I know that I was in a better mood when I dropped her off.
Sometimes I feel my life is incredible busy and I don't have time to serve.
BUT, if I serve I am blessed and the things that don't matter as much fall to the wayside.
