WHAT ABOUT ME?

So don’t get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time you will reap a harvest of blessing if you don’t give up. Therefore, whenever you have the opportunity, you should do good to everyone… (Galatians 6:9-10 NLT).

Beloved, in the story of the prodigal son, you could almost hear the frustration coming from the elder brother. As he was approaching home, he heard noise from a party thrown for his younger brother. What? I can’t believe what I’m hearing… “The older brother was angry and wouldn’t go in. His father came out and begged him, but he replied, ‘All these years I’ve slaved for you and never once refused to do a single thing you told me to. And in all that time you never gave me even one young goat for a feast with my friends. Yet when this son of yours comes back after squandering your money on prostitutes, you celebrate by killing the fattened calf!’ (Luke 15:28-30 NLT)

Well, there’s always this tendency to think ‘WHAT ABOUT ME? I’ve been faithful. I was the one that did this, this and that and if it were not for me, this won’t have happened. ‘WHAT ABOUT ME?

Beloved, relax, the Lord hasn’t forgotten about you. Having read the Book of Esther and the role Mordecia played in her life; raising her up when her parents died and all of the wonderful things he did for her, the king and God’s people, there’s this tiny voice that wants to say it’s all about Esther. She’s the one that becomes queen. It’s possible for that voice to speak especially as Mordecia was actually forgotten for a while until one day the king said… “What reward or recognition did we ever give Mordecai for this?” the king asked. His attendants replied, “Nothing has been done for him.” (Esther 6:3 NLT)

Mordecia was rewarded for his good deeds and though we call it the Book of Esther, do you know the story did not end with Esther? It ended with Mordecia. The very last verse in the Book of Esther says… Mordecai the Jew became the prime minister, with authority next to that of King Xerxes himself. He was very great among the Jews, who held him in high esteem, because he continued to work for the good of his people and to speak up for the welfare of all their descendants (Esther 10:3 NLT).

Beloved… GOD IS NOT UNJUST; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them (Hebrews 6:10 NIV). All your hard work, your labour of love hasn’t gone unnoticed and like our feature text says… let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all… (MSG).

God bless you in Jesus Christ name
