The Bird asked the Honeybee: “You work so hard to make honey and humans just take it away. Doesn’t it bother you?” The Bee replied: “No, not at all! They take my honey, but can’t take away my art of making it.” Do you get discouraged or lose motivation when your efforts are not recognized, rewarded, or others take credit for your work? As long as you’re alive, your honey jar can always be filled. For no one can take away our ability to produce, and God will ensure that our jars never run dry. Don’t cease from diligent and sacrificial labor: “Whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ” (Colossians 3:23, 24). Cheer up! Be the Bee!—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
