Working for Him

“…Well done, thou good and faithful servant…enter thou into the joy of the Lord” (Matthew 25:21). The Lord Jesus is not fair in His distribution of talents, abilities, finances, etc. He is just! Because He is just, He knows what we are capable of doing in and for His Kingdom.

I can endeavor to be both good and faithful with whatever Jesus has entrusted me with – big or small, enjoyable or undesirable. I resolve to do all I can with what I have wherever I am for His glory and the joy of working for Him. - jps


Working for Him

“Father, where shall I work today?”

And my love flowed warm and free.

Then He pointed me out a tiny spot,

And He said, “Tend that one for me.”

I answered quickly, “Oh, no, not that.

Why, no one would ever see,

No matter how well my work was done.

Not that little place for me!”

And the word He spoke, it was not stern,

He answered tenderly,

“Ah, little one, search that heart of yours;

Are you working for them or me?

Nazareth was a little place,

And so was Galilee.”


(1948, Edman, R.V., The Disciplines of Life)
