Many of us think that when we serve God, we are doing a service for him. Yes we are but at the same time, we have to realise that God refers to what we do as the “foolishness of preaching”. In fact, when we serve God, he is blessing us and not the other way around:
Our preaching is foolishness:
1 Corinthians 1:21 King James Version (KJV)
21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
We’re just not as efficient as angels and Jesus Christ but God chooses to use us nonetheless. We are like five years olds who are trying to bake a cake for God!
Isaiah 55:8-9 King James Version (KJV)
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
We are worms before God:
Isaiah 41:14 King James Version (KJV)
14 Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith theLord, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
