Sony’s Thoughts: Do You Feel Unappreciated?
Last week at church, the pastor preached on Luke 17. One of the points he made was how a servant isn’t thanked for the work he does but he does it because it’s his duty to do so. I admit I struggle with that. No matter how much I tell myself I’m working for God, at the end of the day, I want someone to appreciate the work that I do.
I think of Jesus and how He took on the form of a servant. No one appreciated the work that He did. They mocked Him and eventually killed Him. Yet I’m hurt if someone doesn’t notice or appreciate what I do? As the old song says, “I would be like Jesus.” That means I must follow Him no matter what anyone else thinks. May I be faithful to do just that.
If you’re struggling with work or family, thank God for the opportunity to serve anyway. People may not notice but He does. You will receive your reward in due time.
