Unto the Lord

[Wednesday, March 4]

“All you do this day, do it for Me. Look not for the praise of man, and know that each good deed, each gift given, and what is done in My Name is carefully recorded in heaven as an eternal reward for you.”

Prophetic Scripture:

With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men (Ephesians 6:7).

Many of us have forgotten that we are not to spend time looking for man’s praise. I heard a story of someone not too long ago who was angry with his church and decided he wanted all the offerings he gave the church to be returned to him. I am sorry to say that man did not give his offerings to the Lord, and therefore those gifts will not be recorded in the eternal record books of Heaven. How tragic! Why would someone want to give up an eternal reward for a few thousand dollars and a grudge? Even a million dollars isn’t worth it!

Think of how many things we do that we are somehow expecting our proper dues to be given! Of course, it’s okay to be pleased when rewards are given, but we can’t let that motivate us. Human praise and affirmation cannot make us who we are and thus determine how much we will do and won’t do. No, instead we have to do good deeds and
obey the Bible even when no one is handing out compliments. What we do is for the Lord, and no matter what people do with our efforts, the proper motive is going to gain us an eternal reward!


Dear Lord, check my motives today. I make a commitment before You to do everything as a service to You and not to man. Cause me to become content with Your approval alone and not be motivated by the affirmation of people. I repent of any time when my good works were done to man and not to You. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
