Mattithiah, one of the Levites, who was the firstborn of Shallum the Korahite, had the responsibility over the things which were baked in pans. – 1 Chronicles 9:31
Do you believe, as I do, that God has a purpose and plan for every person’s life? The concept of a personal God, a God who not only intervenes in the lives of men but also knows the number of hairs on your head, is distinctly Judeo-Christian in origin. Each one of us was created to fulfill God’s purpose, and His re-creative power in the life of the believer assures that His purpose is being fulfilled.
Though sometimes your purpose may seem insignificant, like Mattithiah’s (the baker’s) above, God’s investment makes it valuable. Paul wrote to Timothy, “‘Now in a large house there are not only gold and silver vessels, but also vessels of wood and of earthenware, and some to honor and some to dishonor. Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from these things, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work (2 Tim. 2:20-21).”
I have no idea what this day, week, month, or year holds for us. I certainly cannot speak to all that you are capable of accomplishing for the Kingdom of Christ, but I do know this, it all matters to Him, because you matter to Him.
My share of the work may be limited, but the fact that it is work makes it precious. – Helen Keller
