Quiet Service

I was at a Stake Relief Society function last weekend at which I got to enjoy a class on missionary work. Sometimes I don’t feel like I do enough of it. Sometimes I also feel like I don’t serve others enough. So when I came across this quote from Elder Jeffrey R. Holland in “Created for Greater Things,” I found it reassuring and encouraging.

“All but a prophetic few must go about God’s work in very quiet, very unspectacular ways. And as you labor to know Him, and to know that He knows you; as you invest your time–and your convenience–in quiet, unassuming service, you will indeed find that ‘He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up’ [sic] (Matthew 4:6).”
So let’s keep on keepin’ on (by doing things like serving our families by cooking dinner, for example–in case you didn’t get my pic), and our loving Heavenly Father, Who knows our hearts, will help us out. 🙂
