Work for the Lord, Not for Credit

Work as if you were doing it
for the Lord, not for people.
    —Colossians 3:23

The Jews were so steamed about Paul’s conversion they plotted his assassination. They posted around-the-clock lookouts at the Damascus gates, determined to drop him in his tracks the minute he split.

But a cagey crew of disciples hatched an alternate plan. From an obscure site on the city wall, they lowered Paul to the ground in a big basket, and he hit the ground running.

Who were the members of this sneaky squad? They all had the same name: Anonymous.

We’ve never heard their names, but if they hadn’t stepped up, we would never have heard Paul’s name.

As the late Dr. Norvel Young often said, “It’s amazing how much you can get done if you don’t care who gets the credit.”

You don’t have to have a big name
to make a big difference.
