“and Mattithiah (sounds quite unfamiliar)…was entrusted with making flat cakes.” 1 Chronicles 9:31 [emphasis mine]
Times come when I feel that the service I do unto God is extremely insignificant (sometimes it can simply mean staying home to take care of our child and being supportive in prayer to my husband as he stays in the front line of our ministry here in Bangladesh).
There’s a temptation to compare what I do now with what I used to do for the Lord when I was single (I was pretty busy then.)
Yet this verse shows me that all God cares about is my faithfulness in doing even a seemingly minute duty I perform for Him. He sees my heart…my motives so nothing else matters. His challenge for me is to be faithful.
“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 15:58
I hope and pray that God will find us faithful in our service for Him until the Lord Jesus comes. He can come anytime. May He find us doing what He has called us to do only by His grace through the Lord Jesus our Savior.
