Faithfulness

“He [God] who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.”1

“When Robert Moffat, Scottish missionary to Africa, came back to recruit helpers in his homeland, he was greeted by the fury of a very cold British winter. Arriving at the church where he was to speak, he noted that only a small group had braved the elements to hear his appeal.

“Although no one responded to Moffat's call for volunteers for mission service in Africa, the challenge thrilled a young boy who had come to work the bellows of the organ. Deciding that he would follow in the footsteps of this pioneer missionary, he went on to school, obtained a degree in medicine, married Moffat's daughter, Mary, and spent the rest of his life ministering to the unreached tribes of Africa. His name: David Livingstone!”2

Whatever and whenever we do “simple acts of kindness and obedience” in Jesus’ name, we may never know until we get to heaven who and how many people will have been reached and affected for all eternity.

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, I ask not for fame or fortune, but that every day for the rest of my life You will help and use me to commit simple acts of kindness in Your name in some way to every life I touch. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus's name, amen."

1. 1 Thessalonians 5:24 (NKJV).
2. Doug Batchelor in Broken Chains (Pacific Press 2004). Cited on WITandWISDOM by Richard Wimer, www.witandwisdom.org
