“And as for you, brothers and sisters, never tire of doing what is good.” (2 Thessalonians 3:13, NIV)
Being on the side of the angels would be so much easier if others appreciated our good works, but good deeds often go either unrecognized, unrewarded or — worst of all — punished.
Paul reminds us to stoke the desire to do the right thing, the right way, at the right time, to all people (especially when we’re rewarded with a kick in the pants instead of a pat on the back).
Never forget that God sees everything. He will reward you for the good you’re doing (even if others do not), so stay on the job! – Luther
