Have you ever been busy about your regular duties at home or at work and someone expressed appreciation to you for your accomplishments? Perhaps it was an unusually nice dinner you spent time preparing. Or your carefully tended garden was ablaze in flowers. Or a project at work was completed ahead of time.
No matter how large or small, your efforts were appreciated. As you heard the words of appreciation expressed, your heart swelled in joy at the recognition, didn’t it?
Can you imagine how you will feel when, at the end of time Jesus says to you:
“Well done, good and faithful servant...." Matthew 25:23
Heavenly Father, I long to hear those words from You not only at the end of time but day by day. Please help me to be Your faithful servant. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
