Too many times we think we need to be on a platform or accomplish something no one has ever accomplished to say we’re being used by God. Doing great and mighty things for the Kingdom of God is important, but the little and seemingly insignificant things matter too.

1 Corinthians 12:15 Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. 16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? 18 But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be? 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body.

When we tell someone an encouraging Word, post something uplifting, or volunteer our time, we’re being used by God. It doesn’t matter if we’re famous or if we’re acknowledged for our service. All that matters is God is glorified and we’re letting our light shine in this darkened world.

Let’s not always look for recognition for our services. If God tells us to do something (big or small), do it to be a blessing for someone else.
