I set a spiritual goal this month which is a very small goal for some but something of importance to me.
At one time I used to report at least 10-15 hours out in the ministry a month but I started to struggle once my work schedule varied.
I then began to report only 4-6 hours a month.
This month I can proudly report 10 hours along with several distributed tracts and magazines.
I was belittling my small goal until my friend Lu sent me this text:
Some people can even get in a full hour
Those ten hours are ten hours
A brother gave a talk the other day. If a publisher spoke to a person for 5 minutes every day, that’s two and a half hours a month. 8 million witnesses. That’s 20 million hours a month.
That’s 240 million hours a year. All that would be unreported if we didn’t report even the smallest of time we put in.”
When I feel discouraged about the hours I put in from now on, I will think of the importance of Lu’s words:
“All that would be unreported if we didn’t report even the smallest of time we put in.”
