The last day of June, often I look back on the month and think “what have I accomplished this month”?
This morning looking in a devotional book I have, this is what I found on the last day of the year.
“Up and be doing,” is the word that comes from God for each of us. Leave some “good work” behind you that shall not be wholly lost when you have passed away. Do something worth living for, worth dying for. Is there no want, no suffering, no sorrow that you can relieve? Is there no act of tardy justice, no deed of cheerful kindness, no long-forgotten duty that you can perform? Is there no reconciliation of some ancient quarrel, no payment of some long-out-standing debt, no courtesy, or love, or honor to be rendered to those to whom it has long been due; no charitable, humble, kind, useful deed by which you can promote the glory of God, or good will among men, or peace upon earth? If there be any such deed, in God’s name, in Christ’s name, go and do it.

Joy and Strength, Mary Wilder Tileston
For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
Trust God for your day, Today
