Dear <<First Name>>,
It is quite surprising how we can be so easily caught up with achieving or building something for the Kingdom of God. Perhaps, It's a natural process of us being matured and given more responsibilities by Him, but would it be okay if we put all of our efforts in achieving or building something? What would we have to keep in mind to keep ourselves from being carried away? On Sunday, my family had a time of worship together with this question in our hearts. God gave us an answer through Luke chapter 18. He planted this in our hearts, "I want you to put your effort in multiplying and I will build through it." He just wants us to be someone who stays faithful in His love and compassion just as the widow had done. He wants us to judge ourselves by His righteousness and not by human's or our own standards as the tax collector had done. He wants us to come to Jesus without any hesitation or conditions and be happy to be with Him as children and be willing to give up who we are for Him just as the rich man should have done. As we help and encourage each other to be this way, God said He will build the Kingdom of God to glorify Himself. I believe that this is the only way we can truly glorify Him through what He has built through us.
