Undeserving Praise

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Luke 17:10. So you too, when you have done everything you were commanded to do, should say, We are slaves undeserving of special praise; we have only done what was our duty. ”

Some have left churches because they didn’t think they were appreciated or thanked enough for what they did. It is nice to feel appreciated or be thanked but that should not be our incentive for our actions. We are told in the scriptures to do all, words and deeds, for the glory of God. There is nothing wrong in thanking people. Thanks is an encouragement to keep going. The bottom line is motivation. Are we doing things to look good or smart or are we allowing God to work through us for His glory? We are to realize His joy in us when we walk in submission and obedience to our God.
