God values what you do

November 09, 2015

“God…will not forget your work and the love you have shown.”

Heb 6:10 NIV

Satan will try to convince you that you don’t count for much in God’s kingdom because you don’t have a high-profile gift like preaching, teaching, or leading in public. Nothing could be further from the truth: “God…will not forget your work and the love you have shown…as you…helped his people.” God sees you working behind the scenes day in and day out, caring for aging loved ones, raising your children, encouraging others, and contributing where you can. Will Rogers said, “We can’t all be heroes. Somebody has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by.” So when you think you’re too small to do big things, try doing small things with a big heart of love. You never know what you can do until you try! James Sizoo said: “Glamour isn’t greatness, applause isn’t fame, and prominence isn’t eminence. The man of the hour isn’t apt to be the man of the ages. A stone may sparkle but that doesn’t make it a diamond. People may have money but that doesn’t make them a success. It’s the seemingly unimportant people who determine the course of history. The greatest forces in the universe are never spectacular. Summer showers do more good than hurricanes, but they don’t get a lot of publicity. The world would soon die but for the fidelity, loyalty, creativity, and commitment of those whose names are unhonored and unsung.” Today God values what you do. “Don’t get discouraged and give up, for [you] will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time” (See Gal 6:9).
