Output or Input?

Many a times when we serve God we can end up feeling dry. We feel that we have sacrificed so much for God but yet the work does not grow or others do not appreciate it. We think that we output so much yet our input from God and others are so little. We feel as though that the kingdom of God and others are indebted to us just that we do not voice it out. We do not see how much we actually learn from God and how God feeds us every day. Honestly speaking, God does not require our service or sacrifice; He can accomplish His work much better and faster on His own without us. But He entrusts His work to us so that we would learn and be shaped by Him. He is actually giving us all the input we need through serving Him so that at the end of the day, we would conform to His image and acquire the heart of God. So don’t always see or boast about how much we have output, thank God for all the input we have received from Him. Let us be more humble and see the true essence of serving God.
