Matthew 27:57-60

I love getting the credit for stuff I've done. It makes me feel good and appreciated. Most people like feeling appreciated. But a lot of the stuff that needs to get done in ministry and life are things that nobody will ever thank you for. I've run sound on several of our youth mission trips. Nobody ever noticed anything I did, which is kind of the point and shows that I did it well. But nobody ever said anything. Nobody appreciated it. That makes serving a lot harder sometimes because it comes to the joy of the service and the joy you get because of whom you are serving. JM
