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
Service that is given to boost the ego or obtain a pat on the back is false. Bragging about the good we have done is of no value to anyone. Unwillingness to help others is questionable. When we give because ‘we have to’ we quickly run out of steam.
H.W. Collins says: Help me serve with pure motive, With no thought of gain to me; Drive me on, and into action. I’m to prone to count the cost.
Here am I, Lord, send me with clear vision of what I can be to others and what I can do for them.
