There are times when we put forth great effort to do a job or help someone, and
our deeds seem to be taken for granted. Does anyone appreciate our work?
It is pleasant to have our works acknowledged and appreciated by others, and it is good to be thankful and express your appreciation to those who show you generosity and kindness. But even when everyone else fails to notice, God sees, understands, appreciates and rewards us openly.
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
