There are many people who always do his work without expecting any results. The best thing is to do what can be done but not to expect whether positive or negative. God always blesses those who realize his value and the value of his own efforts, on the other hand, if one he is doing efforts for his immediate family, denying faith on Lord, it will also not acceptable because without his blessing nothing can be done. Both plays equally in Life.
