How many of us stick around in a cinema long enough to read the credits at the end of a movie? I know I don’t. Yet all those wonderful people helped make the movie a possibility. The boom operator, the accountant, the script writer all go unnoticed in the grand scheme of the movie and what guess what else? The actors and directors are the guys that make the big bucks.
That can be though on any ego. This is however what meekness is all about. It isn’t weakness, it is letting other people take the credit for our hard work. It is making sure the job gets done and allowing other people to take the glory.
We should never fear a lack of recognition. One day when we stand before God, he will have the checklist at hand. You were a faithful usher, or a children’s church teacher. The time you spent holding the teenager when she cried after a rejection. The love you showed to the man who everyone else walks past. The prayers you prayed for a loved one’s salvation. God has all those records.
When we stand before Him one day that is when our name will be in bright lights. All heaven will stop and stand at attention as you enter those pearly gates and then we will be able to hold our heads up high and say, “It was worth it!”
