Life on earth is full of disappointments. How many times have you looked forward with great expectation to something that had seemed to be so inviting and so promising, only to be let down when your hopes failed to materialize? Do you get tired? Discouraged? Bummed out? Burned out? Of course. All Christ followers do sometimes. Here's the verse which helps when you feel overworked and underappreciated:
So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless. 1 Corinthians 15:58 NLT
You can't afford not to know, " the CEV says...that everything you do for the Lord is worthwhile."Just because we know we have treasure in earthen vessels, doesn't always mean we feel encouraged and secure (even though we should). Just because we know we have treasure in earthen vessels, doesn't always mean we feel victorious. This is why Paul urges them to stand firm and not be shaken. Always keep busy working for the Lord, because.. "You can't afford not to know, "that everything you do for him is worthwhile."
