Do you ever do stuff?
Aren't you excited for this complex and well thought out discussion?
Okay, let me see if I can get my point across.
Pretend you worked really hard on something. Doesn't really matter what it is. Any thing from dinner, to a church party to a wedding cake. You spent hours and hours on this particular project. And it's something that you are doing out of the goodness of your heart.
The thing happens (or is eaten), it's over. And no one said thank you.
A: Yell to the rooftops that you deserve some recognition for this project you gave your heart and soul to. (Or maybe just your time.)
B: Take it with grace and figure that the Lord knows what you have done and will reward you in heaven.
C: Don't tell anyone, but feel all resentful and annoyed.
So, what would you do?
