1 Peter 1:10 Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who spoke of the grace that was to come to you, searched intently and with the greatest care, 11 trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings of the Messiah and the glories that would follow. 12 It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you, when they spoke of the things that have now been told you by those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Even angels long to look into these things.

There are certain things God may instruct us to do. Before, while, or after the task, we may wonder what’s in it for us. The answer to that question may be nothing.

God may have us do something that solely benefits someone else. He may have us give to a ministry, move to a different city, change jobs, or be a blessing to a complete stranger. We may not see or know about the impact it made, but we must have faith knowing it made a difference. Our presence or gift can potentially impact a person’s life for years.

Although we may not reap a reward from that organization or person, we’ll reap a reward from God because Ephesians 6:8 says, whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord. Be mature enough to know whatever God calls you to do may not benefit you, but it can be a blessing to someone else.
