If you didn’t receive another thank you, or an ounce of recognition for the things you do now, would you continue to do them?
How you go about doing what you do, matters more than what you’re doing.
Be mindful of your motives and have some integrity. You will have more peace when you’re doing it for the right reasons, rather acknowledged or not.
We live in a time where the appearance of something matters more than what it actually is underneath. A modern gilded age really. We take a million pictures for the perfect one, we yell at the kids to stop touching the balloons for the party you’ve put together because it has to be perfect, even though you bought the balloons for them, and hope that we can “capture” a moment worth talking about instead of actually being in them.
How we are doing it matters more than what we are actually doing. Just like man looks at the outer appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. What good is a beautiful shell with dead bones on the inside? We must examine ourselves, and our motives today, and really begin to do things, no matter great or small, with the right heart attitude. Doing so will allow more peace to come to you, as you are no longer angered over touched balloons or lack of an appreciation post, or recognition. You did it because it was in you to do, because you want to make their day, or just see them smile. Or whatever the reason.
The little things we do matter. The time and effort you put into something does not go unnoticed, (God sees) but if it wasn’t by man, would you keep cleaning the house, or taking lunch to the widow down the road?
Ask yourself, what do I find myself getting upset about when I’m not recognized for it? Begin resetting yourselves today and make a decision to do whatever you do today with the right heart attitude, no matter the praise, or lack thereof. ♥️
Abundance & Light,
