Be wary of your state of mind

If you find offense when they seem unkind

If you become tired because they fail to say

They appreciate you and regard the day

Do not stop doing, what is right and good

Even if it seems, you must or should

For God has graced you with His mercy and love

So, act as He would, as from above

We can’t stop doing good when people do not show their appreciation for you. In fact, we have to continue to do good because we are sons and daughters of God. When we have issues, where do we go to? We go down the path towards God. We may not entirely see those who have wronged us, but we need faith to make us stronger while we overcome challenges. What God promises for us, there is no doubt that we will experience hurdles. It is not the end of the journey. Rather, we are being blessed along the process of the journey. Being spiritually driven is really our strength. Galatians 6:9 states:

“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”

All of us have fallen short in the goodness of God. Always prefer God’s reward than man’s reward. While man is prone to disappointing others all the time, God never disappoints or lets us down. Despite all of the wrongdoings, we cannot be distracted or deterred on how people perceive our unique gifts. If we feel a sense of accomplishment and feeling of success in the name of God, we do not need to pursue anything further from the expectations of man. Essentially, it is good for God to give us directions and guidance. Everything we do has a rippling and prosperous effect in His name.
