Over the years when I have done things for people, particularly my family, and I have found that it is not appreciated, I have gotten resentful. But this scripture totally eliminates that from happening! If you do what you are doing for whoever, be it a friend, an organisation, family - do it as unto the Lord - you don't desire a reward, a pat on the back, from those you're helping. The reason being, you KNOW THAT GOD WILL REWARD YOU. Maybe immediately, maybe later, or maybe only in heaven - But - He says He will reward you and God is not a man the He would lie!
If doing something as unto the Lord is your motivation, then you desire to do it to the best of your ability, heartily! At the end of the day, you are a happier person because you did a good job and did not have expectations, the person you are helping is happier because you did a great job, and God gets the glory.
|God will reward you!|
This is my goal! My encouragement to you is to do what you do, whether it be child minding, office work, grocery shopping, painting, helping, whatever it is - do it as unto the Lord - your expectation being in Him alone!
