Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!

Know that the Lord, He is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise!

Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. ~ Psalm 100:1-5 ESV

Let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, ~ Hebrews 12:28 ESV


The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. ~ Proverbs 11:25 NLT

Mother Teresa, one of the greatest servants of all time, once said: "We cannot do great things on this earth, only small things with great love." God not asking us to change the world, only to serve the person that He has put in front of us this moment...and then the next...and then the next.

When we are faithful to serve in the small things, God will use us in big ways.

We may never know the impact of our service to God in this life, but we can trust His Word when he says in I Corinthians 15:58, "Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor is not in vain."
