HARD WORK = GOOD RESULTS? A lot of us have worked hard for many years doing many different things in life. Often we wonder if that hard work has really produced any long lasting and worthwhile results for anyone. That can be a bummer and often a discouraging thought. But this we can know: when we do something for God and His Kingdom whether it is a small or big thing in the eyes of men it will produce results for God. We may not see the results in this lifetime but we have this assurance from God’s Word, "Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain," (1 Corinthians 15:58 NIV).
What a great promise from God! Whether you are young or old stick with working to advance God’s Kingdom and honoring God in what you do. No deed is too small and the results of that deed are up to God. There is no age requirement in order to work for God. You cannot be too young and retirement is not an option in God's work. But the results are always guaranteed by God and your efforts are never in vain. Let us stand firm in God’s work and let nothing move us away from living for God and serving God.
