Thought of the Day !!

Don't praise yourself; let others do it!
                       Proverbs 27:2 (NLT)

And what about when others don't notice or lend their praise?  Sometimes we feel that we should receive the recognition that we deserve, don't we?  But then again, if we think we deserve the recognition, could it be that we did something good for a poor reason? 

If it were fair for us to receive all the praise that we deserve, wouldn't it also be fair for us to receive all the criticism that we deserve?  But we don't want to hear that. 

Basically, God knows all the good we do; the kind words said, the offerings made, the deeds done for others, etc.  And God, who knows all we do, will reward us one day for being the overall person He created us to be.  He won't forget those acts of kindness that others will.  He won't forget those times where you sacrificed, even when others will.  He won't forget those times that you acted and nobody else even noticed.  He won't forget when we do these things out of our love for Him and for others instead of so that we can be noticed by people.

In the love of Christ,
