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)
When the things you do are sincerely in the name of The Lord, you can rest assured your labor is not in vain. There is no wasted effort if it’s for the Lord. He knows your heart and He knows all that you’re going through (Luke 16:15) when it’s right and when it’s wrong. We may labor and sacrifice a lot in different things, but if it was not built up for the Lord Himself, it counts for nothing. It doesn’t matter what others say about you or about the things you strive to do for God. Go lang ng go, if it’s for the Lord. It counts for nothing, if it was not really for the Lord. It only matters what He thinks. It’s about what you do and who you are in the eyes of the Lord not in men.
Whatever we do, if the Lord is not with us, if the Lord is not doing it with us, Solomon says, it is then meaningless. Wherever we go, if the Lord goes not with us, it is then meaningless. What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul.
Be the kind of a person who doesn’t just want to do well to please or compete with others, but because he/she has given himself/herself fully to the work of the Lord, and he/she desires to please Him, to glorify Him and give Him honor. Because when you do, your labor is NOT in vain. Let God be your inspiration whatever you do. You’re doing this for one reason; FOR HIM ALONE!
WAG KANG MAPAPAGOD. IF IT’S FOR THE LORD, WALANG SAYANG!
