Description: Most everybody likes to help others. It’s in our DNA because God made us that way. Sometimes, though, we get discouraged because our work and efforts to help others don’t seem to make much of a difference. Paul gives us some very encouraging words for moments like that. He says, “Don’t get discouraged because what you do for the Lord will not be in vain.” In other words, what we do for God and his kingdom has eternal consequences whether we see them or not. That’s called “return on investment,” something every organization and business wants to see. So, don’t lose heart or give up or grow discouraged in your efforts to serve God in your family, job, community and church. Instead, keep going because God will use whatever you do when you do it for him.
