Don’t Seek Recognition. Give Value

Maybe this is the case with you; you are unhappy and dissatisfied with yourself and your achievements. You look at yourself and become sad because you aren’t a genius; you were born without any special talents; you are just ordinary; no rich family; no good education. Mediocrity seems to be the measure of your existence. None of your days are note- worthy, except for their sameness and lack of zest. In spite of what your life may look like right now, don’t give up. Don’t be frustrated.

I used to think so about my life too. Nothing about me seem great, I always wondered what impact my life was making. If I was touching any life at all with my messages; if people were ever listening to me. I look at the great names out there inspiring people, the blogs with thousands of followers and readers, the authors whose books have impacted several generations, and I shrink.

I kept going this way until someone mentioned this to me; “John the Baptist never performed a miracle, but Jesus said of him, “Among those born of women there is no one greater” (Luke 7:28). His mission was to be “a witness to the light” (John 1:8), and that may be your mission and mine. John was content to be only a voice, if it caused people to think of Christ.”

Folks we may not have special talents. Our works may not receive international recognition; we may not all write bestsellers. But we can still be something to someone! Your work may seem insignificant, but do it anyway. Others may not appreciate the impact you are making but don’t let it deter you knowing that God who sees the secret will reward you in the open. Live your greatest life!
