I know missionaries who have little time and zero interest in singing their own praises as they labor for Jesus in far away places. These do not Twitter nor do they seek followers on Facebook, not that that would be wrong. The farthest thing on their minds would be to embellish a report in order to get the attention or support of others.
Someday, the first will be last and the last first.
Success or not - let us be faithful to our Lord and Master and Friend. Let's spread His love and His words wherever we are. Onward and upward you servants of the Most High!
