You Are Missed More Than You Know

But now… Timothy has come to us from you, and has brought us good news of your faith and love, and that you always think kindly of us, longing to see us just as we also long to see you (1 Thessalonians 3:6).

It’s a silent fear among all who have ever touched the life of another:

Will I be remembered?

And if so, will I be remembered kindly?

Sometimes we brace ourselves for the bad news by those calming, settling rationalizations…

…Oh, it was nothing special…

…They’ve probably moved on…

…I wasn’t that important…

Then Timothy shows up with good news.

They always think kindly of you.

They long to see you as much as you long to see them.

You’re crazy-missed.

And your influence lives on.

Never underestimate the power of the faith, hope, and love you invest in somebody else.
