|Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men|
|And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;|
Our work is both given by God and should be done in service to Him; no matter how small or great the task.
God promises to recognize and reward our efforts whether others do or not. (Matt. 6:19-21; Heb. 6:10).
Further, Jesus taught that if believers do something solely for the recognition of others, they completely miss God's reward.
