As the saying goes: “If it were easy, everyone would be doing it.”
Working faithfully while waiting to be acknowledged is, sometimes, very difficult. Self-promotion is nothing new. People have been burnishing their image, publishing their credentials, and boasting about their strengths since the beginning of time.
However, the wisdom of God encourages us to let our praise come from the mouth of others; from the lips of those who have no ulterior motive or hidden interest. A few words of praise from such people is worth more than thousands of words of self-promotion.
Choose the narrow path. It is worth the solitude, the work, and the wait. – Luther
