You may never see it

Some of us attempt to do things to please Jesus. We try to obey His teachings. But often, our efforts seem to fall flat.

Our view is mostly short – simply because we can’t see into the future.

God sometimes honors our actions in ways we may see right away, a long way down the road – or never.

Jim and Sara Meyer are filmmakers that my wife and I have known for about 25 years. They have used their talents to serve Jesus for most of their adult lives.

They recently made a four-minute video about an American who invested in the life of a young Italian guy – and discovered many years later that he went on to do amazing things for God’s kingdom.

So keep doing those good things for Jesus. You never know what may result!
