I don't know how many times I've just wanted to give up on whatever it is I'm doing. I just have no motivation and no desire to put all my effort into something that seems fruitless. Or that I would be ignored no matter how invested I was. This week's devotional time really reminded me that I shouldn't look towards other for recognition because that can lead to disappointment. But rather, just put everything I have into it and know that God's love and being pleasing to him is what makes it worth it.
Whatever you do, do it with all you heart.
