John 17:18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.
Jesus faithfully recounts His ministry to His Father in Heaven; how often do you lift up what you have done to God?
The more we can remind ourselves of what we have done, or the chances we have missed out on, the more we can do better next time!
God wants us to be honest and open with Him. If we are finding things hard, we need to pray for help. If we are doing great, we need to remind ourselves of what we do by lifting it up as a prayer to God!
