Your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
—1 Corinthians 15:58
The late Dr. Norvel Young often said, “You’re doing more good than you know.”
Are you disappointed with the accomplishments of your life?
I know a lady who died grieving, convinced that she had failed as a parent. Her unbearable sadness would have turned to unspeakable gladness if she could have seen the terminal fruit of her labor—a late-blooming daughter who turned out to be a highly influential Christian teacher.
God’s growing season varies from person to person. He doesn’t hold you accountable for the harvest, only for planting and watering. And that’s something you’re doing every day, by the things that you say and the prayers that you pray.
You’re doing more good than you know.
Do your best. God asks nothing more.
