TOPIC: LABOUR REWARDED
Read: Esther 2:15
“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” Galatians 6:9
Esther had lost both parents earlier in life and was raised by her uncle, Mordecai, who was one of the palace workers. He must have raised Esther in strict compliance with the word of God for her to remain chaste until the contest before the king. Mordecai raised Esther and in return, she brought him into greatness by mentioning his name to the King.
This shows the extent to which Esther appreciated her uncle for training her. Also, at the time Mordecai was raising Esther, there was no vacancy for Queen but at the appointed time, an opportunity showed up when her training was over. Her position as the queen shows that God had picked her to deliver the Jews. Perhaps, you work so hard but are not appreciated by your pastor, parent or leader for the services you render to God and mankind.
In fact, rather than approval or commendation, you may be getting sharp reprimands or discouragement, especially when you make a little mistake. Don’t be discouraged, don’t stop doing the things you do, because there is Someone keeping a record of all you do and He has promised that He will not forget your labour of love. Esther was rewarded with the crown; your own reward will come very soon.
You will definitely reap the good you have sown.
