I love this scripture; it reminds me that every good, small, or simple thing that I am doing is for a greater cause. Visiting teaching, for example, is laying the foundation for stronger testimonies of the sisters we visit, friendships that may not have been formed otherwise, and helping those we teach get through hard times and become more faithful and more dependent on the Lord.
Motherhood also is laying a foundation of a great work (even though there are quite a few days that I become quite weary!), and any experienced mother can attest that all the well-doing, weary moments are absolutely worth it.
I know that God has provided each of us opportunities for well-doing. These opportunities make us better people and we also help build His kingdom in ways we may not even understand. I'm grateful for a merciful God who gives us the chance (and choice) to love and serve those around us.
Have you seen great results from the service you have offered to others?
