Week 4; Day 5 – Finish Well

So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, “we are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty”.

luke 17:10

Matilda has been a fine mother, infact she has been excellent. She has patiently incubated & hatched out 7 chicks. She has nurtured, guarded and taught them. Her job is done, finished, the end? Or is it? Will she start over again next year?

We like a bit of praise and recognition for the work we have done, don’t we? We want others to recognise the time and effort we have put in to something, an act of service, showing some kindness, or some sacrifice.

Yet Jesus tell us we have only done that which was required of us as His servants. Our joy and satisfaction should be that we have served and served well, even if no-one else notices!

Lord, may we always give You the Praise and glory for anything You have enabled us to do. May our service be to You and may we finish well. Amen.
