Not in Vain

Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

—1 Corinthians 15:58

Do you know the feeling?

You plant some vegetable seeds in a new little garden spot in the yard.

Most of the seeds produce a little plant, but before the summer is over, they all die.

All of that work!

Digging out the weeds.

Preparing the soil for planting.

Watering every day.

Now, it seems that all that work was in vain.

Nothing came of it.

The work of the Lord is not like that.

Nothing that we do in the work of the Lord is wasted.

He can use all of the offerings of our time, our talents and our words for His purpose.
