According to the ordinance of his father David, he appointed the divisions of the priests for their service, and the Levites for their offices of praise and ministry alongside the priests as the duty of each day required, and the gatekeepers in their divisions for the several gates; for so David the man of God had commanded. (2 Chronicles 8:14
The next day about the same time he was wandering on a hill-side near that same church. Suddenly he heard one of the most beautiful sounds he had ever heard. It was the chimes of St. Nicolas. He wondered if the man who played those chimes ever realized what a beautiful sound he was making for the people nearby. It sounded like only loud noise inside the tower, but to those in the countryside, it was the most beautiful music this side of heaven.
Some of us may have equal difficulty seeing the beauty in our work. All of us may experience burn-out at some time or another, but what we do for God is very important. Keep at it!
Dear Jesus, help me to honor your ministry by carrying it on. In your name, Amen.
