One of my greatest challenges, personally, is doing what I know to do at the best of my ability… when it’s not noticed. As a pastor, I must do ministry well, though I receive no award because I don’t have huge numbers, big buildings, or large budgets. Just pastor people well.
As a teacher, I must teach well. I have that ability, so I must deliver to the best of that ability. Leave behind something, whether I get my own idea of “recognition” or not. Do things well.
