A friend sent this lovely reminder: -

The power for work is love. It was love that moved God to all His work in creation and redemption. It was love that enabled Christ as man to work and to suffer as He did. It is love that can inspire us with the power of a self-sacrifice that seeks not its own, but is ready to live and die for others. It is love that gives us patience that refuse to give up the unthankful or the hardened. it is love that reaches and overcome the most hopeless. Both in ourselves and those for whom we labour, love is the power for work. Let us love as Christ loved us.

Andrew Murray, in Working For God.
