Maybe Not as Much as Others

  Some might demean their good efforts because they do not produce as much good as they would desire or even as much good as others. But that is not the most important thing. We should do what we can according to our ability and opportunity (according to that a man hath). That is not always the same with every person.

  Study the parable of the seed taught by the Lord and recorded in Matthew13 and other places as well. Notice where the seed fell and the results. Some seed fell on good ground but it did not produce the same in every case. What matters is that it produced what it could.

  We shall not be judged in comparison with others anyway. The Lord knows us and we know His will. We must do the very best we can to follow that will and whatever it produces will be good even if not as great as some others. Be glad for every good produced.
