We need to have the right mindset before we can go out and serve. We start by having the mindset of Christ. Serving not with our own interest but in the interest of others. If we use Jesus as our model for serving, then everything we do is for the interest of others. If we can come together and serve one another, we should do so without complaining so that we can shine as lights in the world.
I get it, it is hard serving people. But if we focus our minds to our Savior and learn to love others the way Jesus loves them and see them the way He did, then we can serve without complaining. When others look at the church, they can see Jesus in the way we serve others making us blameless and harmless, children of God without fault even in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation who is only out for themselves.
Serving others, the way Jesus would.
