(I received Cristy Wyatt’s permission to write this message.)

I took Cristy Wyatt to the driver’s license bureau four times. She failed all four times. When she failed the first time, she cried. She did not cry the second, third, and fourth times, but she went home frustrated.

When the fifth test was over, she was told to get out of the car. She thought she had failed again. But the examiner said, “You did OK.” In that instant, she forgot all about the tears and frustration. Her face was overflowing with joy.

When I saw this, I remembered the parable of Christ in chapter 25 of Matthew. A master gave money to three of his servants and went on a trip. Two of them were able to increase his money, so he said to them, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”

In the same way, Christians desire to use the talent that God has given them to bring glory to His name and live a life that is pleasing to Him. However, there are times when we do not succeed. There are times when we are frustrated. There are times when we cry.

However, if we faithfully serve the Lord with all our strength, we too will hear the words that bring the greatest joy to Christians. “Well done, thou good and faithful servant. You did OK.” When we hear those words, we shall forget all about the trials, the failures, and the tears and sense the most wonderful joy.

Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven.
(Matthew 5:11-12)
