    Reminder: What You Do Matters

    What you do matters.

    Even if others make you feel differently, what you do matters.

    Even if scathing anonymous notes (we've all received them) or gossip aimed at you stings, what you do matters.

    No one said it would be easy.

    In fact, you knew it wouldn't be easy.

    No one said ministry would be puppy dogs and rainbows. (But thankfully, sometimes there ARE puppy dogs and rainbows).

    Whether your church is 10 people or 10,000, what you do matters.

    In fact, there's no other thing in the world that matters more.

    God has placed you where you are right now to help facilitate change in people's lives. Some will impact thousands today. Others will impact one. Either way matters both to God and the person that's changed.

    Don't ever discount the worth of the work you do based on circumstances or what others say.

    In the next couple weeks in Monday Morning Insight, we're going to talk about courage in leadership. Next week, we'll talk about the courageous act of staying in your current ministry role when it's much easier to leave. Then the following week, we'll talk about the courage it takes to leave your current ministry role when it's much easier to stay.

    Both are generous and courageous acts of leadership. And both are based on the worth and value of your work.

    Until then, let me pass on one of my favorite passages from Colossians 3:23-24 from The Message: 

    "And don’t just do the minimum that will get you by. Do your best. Work from the heart for your real Master, for God, confident that you’ll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance. Keep in mind always that the ultimate Master you’re serving is Christ. The sullen servant who does shoddy work will be held responsible. Being a follower of Jesus doesn’t cover up bad work."

    My encouragement to you today:

    What. You. Do. Matters.

    Remember that as you tackle your week.  Do your best. Work hard. In the good times, and especially in the hard times. Remember who you serve, and serve Him well.
