TOPIC: GOD VALUES WHAT YOU DO
TEXT: Hebrews 6: 10 “For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour Of love which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister…”
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 help His people.’ God sees you working behind the scenes day in and day out, caring for ageing loved ones, raising your children, encouraging others, and contributing where you can.
Beloved, ‘ We can’ t all be heroes. Somebody has to sit on the kerb 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! Do you know glamour isn’t greatness? 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. lt’s the seemingly unimportant people who determine the course of history. ‘ The world would soon die but for the fidelity, loyalty, creativity, and commitment of those whose names are unhonoured and unsung. ‘
Today, as a follower of Jesus, you have been given a choice to invest your life and God as the owner expects a return – that is to be a faithful and productive steward of His talents and resources entrusted to you. God values what you do. ‘Don’t get discouraged and give up, for [you] will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time’ (Gal 6:9). As you engaged in kingdom care especially the ordinary with a heart of love you will surely reap a harvest of blessings at the appropriate time.
