Sometimes I still really long for people (not just God!) to notice me and tell me I’m cool or that they’re proud of the great job I’m doing. Maybe you feel like this some days? Paul wrote to some Christians in Ephesus who were working for other people.
Don’t stop doing what you do, and doing your best. Excellence and sincerity generally get noticed. And even if your best efforts aren’t rewarded by others, God promises a huge harvest if you don’t give up.
