Well Done, Good and Faithful Servant





His master replied, "Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!" Matthew 25:21



My mother-in-law, Kathy, passed away earlier this week. At the visitation and funeral, which turned out beautiful and brought comfort to those who grieved her absence, I had family and friends thank me numerous times for taking such good care of her. The gift I gave her, of letting her live with us in her last days, is priceless. I would do it again.


As I reflected on the last 6 1/2 months of Kathy's life here, I wish I had done some things differently. I wasn't always happy about taking care of her. In some ways, I don't feel as if I did a good job. But God told me the same thing the master told his servant in this above passage, "Well done, good and faithful servant." Because even though I wasn't always a joyful caregiver, I persevered until the end. I finished my duties. I showed true love for Kathy. (Love isn't about how I feel but rather about what I do.)


I know that God is testing me and preparing for bigger things down the road. This experience will be one of many to fulfill my calling.  May God always say, "Well done, good and faithful servant."
