Why Bother?

whyWhy Bother?

Why bother when sometimes what you do isn’t good enough?

Why bother when you do the right thing and others treat you with discontent?

Why bother when your good works receive no recognition?

Why bother when the going gets tough?

Why bother when you’re never included?

Why bother when you keep making mistakes or reminded of your past ones?

Why bother when you can’t think of the right words to say?

Why bother when you feel left behind?

Why bother when people insult you?

Why bother?

Because “God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).

Why bother?

Because you are loved and appreciated by the God who created you.  Because you are a precious child of his.  Because you do matter and he will forgive your mistakes.  Because he has reserved a place for you in Heaven.  Because he deserves all the glory.
