Where's My Reward?
It has been hard not to focus on rewards in my ministry. My attitude can change like the tide if I get a good review or a bad one. Sometimes I’m bummed if I’ve poured work into a project and others don’t notice as I think they should.
I don’t get a certificate or another trinket as I serve Jesus. An eternal inheritance is my reward. And Jesus, of course, doesn’t put a star on a chart for the things we do right. Instead, He is the one who will shine bright in our lives now, and for eternity. I need to remember that. I need to remember that He is the one I work for, and pleasing Him is enough.
FAITH STEP: When is the last time you worked hard and didn’t get the reward you deserved? Think about that time and consider Jesus looking down on you with approval. “Well done, good and faithful servant.” Write a prayer committing to Him your work and your desire to serve others for His approval.
