Do not grow weary in doing good. 2 Thessalonians 3:13
One year at Wimbledon, tennis legend Jimmy Connors was playing Mikael Pernfors. Connors lost the first two sets 6 games to 1. And he was losing in the third set 4 games to 1.
Connors was nursing a leg injury, yet incredibly, he came back to win the match. Afterwards, an interviewer said to him, “You’re 34 years old, and you’re carrying a leg injury. You are 2 sets down and behind 4 games to 1, and you’ve already won all this stuff. Don’t you ever think to yourself, Is this really worth it? To which Connors said, “It is always worth it!”
Never tire of doing what is right. It is always worth it, and supremely for this reason: Jesus said that even a cup of cold water, the smallest act done, given in His name will have its reward. One day you will stand in the presence of Jesus, and on that day, every act that honored Christ, every decision to do what is right, every sacrifice you have ever made will be of infinite value.
You will never regret one good deed that you have done. You will never regret one sacrifice that you have made for Jesus. You will never regret one costly decision to do what is right when you are in the presence of Jesus. So, look at what is ahead of you and press on.
Where are you beginning to wonder today: Is this really worth it?
