Hebrews 6:10 (ESV) – For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do.
This work is done for The Lord. We must be careful never to forget that we work for approval of The Lord and not man. It is essential to remember how closely associated the what and why are to each other because there are moments where our love might wane if we base our calling, purpose and actions on the reception of others. No, we do this because we have hope of better things; namely salvation. And, in this, there might be many long days where we will labor in the vineyard in complete anonymity, no one ever taking the time to acknowledge what was done for them or the love that was shown. Yet, the Lord will remember and is a rewarder.
Labor Is Not In Vain – 1 Corinthians 15:57-58
