How to be Proud of Your Work.
In Christ Jesus, then, I have reason to be proud of my work for God. 18 For I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me to bring the Gentiles to obedience- by word and deed, 19 by the power of signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God- so that from Jerusalem and all the way around to Illyricum I have fulfilled the ministry of the gospel of Christ; 20 and thus I make it my ambition to preach the gospel, not where Christ has already been named, lest I build on someone else's foundation, 21 but as it is written, "Those who have never been told of him will see, and those who have never heard will understand."

These are questions worth answering for your context. Your answers will be the same as Paul’s answers, yet different.
Reflect on the assignment(s) God has given you and your family. Spend some time in prayer asking God these questions. He knows your heart better than you know yourself.
May you be encouraged to carry out the assignment(s) God has given you.
