I just finished preaching through Malachi today, and I am once again amazed at the "staying power" of God's people. Honestly, I don't look for compliments or "kudos" for my preaching. I just want people to hear the Word of the Lord as I do my best to remain faithful to the Scriptures and my Lord. It's a bonus from God when His people are affected by my preaching. And for that, I am grateful.
