What to do When Your Service Goes Unnoticed
Is all of the work you are doing making a difference? 2 out of 3 American employees feel unappreciated at work. While being unappreciated at work is a tough spot to be in, what should you do when you are serving God with your talents and spiritual gifts and it seems like your service isn’t making a difference? Your kids don’t seem to change. Your friends aren’t taking your biblical wisdom seriously. People are still in need and the person you’ve been praying for hasn’t accepted the Gospel.
Joseph used his God-given ability to help the cupbearer and Joseph only asked for one thing in return: for the cupbearer to remember him. It took 2 years for the cupbearer to remember Joseph. How should we respond when all of the gospel work that we are doing doesn’t seem like it is making a difference or that it is going unnoticed and others have success while you are left imprisoned (still in prison).
Colossians 3:23-24 instructs us to work as though we are working for the Lord, not for men.
