So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Galatians 6:9 (The Message)
It is easy to allow offense or grow bitter when a good deed is overlooked, it is easy to make permanent verdict to never do good just because it went unnoticed or overlooked the last time we did. Thank God for Jesus who calls us to do whatever we do as unto Him and not unto man. Matthew 6:2-4
Here is a story of Mordecai who by reason of staying at the gate heard of the coup that was being plotted to assassinate the king, he then decides to let his niece Esther know of the coup that was plotted and BOOM! the king was saved from eating a meal that would have cost him his life.
However, it feels like no accolade or even party was thrown in honour of Mordecai, everyone kept talking about how the king would have died but never mentioned the person who saved his life. Maybe Mordecai was hurt, maybe he was never hurt, maybe he just believed he did it for God, maybe something else was on His mind… Esther 2:21-23
Fast forward to later in life, the chronicles was visited by the same king because God nudged His heart and wouldn’t allow him rest until he honoured Mordecai. Esther 6
It only tells us that what is most times overlooked by men is not overlooked by God which is why Galatians 6:9 tells us not to be weary in well doing for in due season we’d reap if we do not faint.
We hope this encourages a number of us who feel overlooked or feel every good deed we have done overlooked, God keeps records and everything we do must be from a heart that yearns to please Him and not from a heart that yearns to please men.
The Lord keep your heart and may you do things to please Him alone.
