Nine out of ten
It's always a good thing when someone determines that they're going to be used by God and accept the challenges that come with that calling. Whether our burden and labor is recognized by the "saint of the month" committee or not doesn't even matter. That's not what should fuel our sense of responsibilty.
It's believed that early Christians commonly greeted each other by saying, Maranatha, which simply means, "Come O, Lord" or "The Lord has come." Either way you look at it, this distinct salutation reminded believers that no one should be idle and careless. Whether were looking for the coming of the Lord, or we realize that the Lord has come in flesh, both are good reasons to not be sleepy, inoperative members of Christ's body. Even if we're just fingers.
