“Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.
2 “Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 3 But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
So why do we write blog posts about stuff we do? Many reasons. One - YOU are part of our team. You encourage us, pray for us, financially support us...and what you do in support of us, you do in support of what we are doing wherever we are. Secondly - for God's glory. How one small act, one simple gesture, one small box of food can make a huge and lasting impact in His people by what we do. We are all part of this huge body, the hand, the foot, the ear, the eye - and we are called to be God's hands and feet on Earth. To care for His people. That is why we blog. That you may be the hand and feet that God has called us to be - although you are not here physically, you are here because we are here.
And yet...I still can't help but feel inadequate. It's just little ol' me thinking she can make a difference. But the way I finally have come to see it is this - I am not here to save the world...God already did that...I am here to help that ONE person...that ONE child...and to be obedient to Him who sent me. So that's what I do - broken, sinful, inadequate, obedient me...
And truly what keeps me going day after stressful/horrible/difficult day, the words I long to hear when my race is done, "Well done...my good and faithful servant."
