Most people seek earthly rewards from people, which is given today and forgotten by tomorrow or it may last for a couple of weeks or months and then after a while it will be out of sight and out of mind. However, Godly rewards are unforgettable. For example, if you’ve accepted and believed in Jesus Christ and confessed and turned from your sins then your unforgettable reward is eternal life. Hebrews 11:6 tells us that God rewards those who diligently seek Him. When God rewards you they are memorable because it is at times when you can’t help yourself and the only other way out is by Him through Jesus Christ. That’s why Philippians 4:19 tells us that He will supply all our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus. James 1:17 points out that every reward that comes from God is good and perfect. Which means there is no earthly compensation. However, there is another side to the type of reward a person receives and how they receive it. Matthew 6:1-4 tell us that when we do things don’t do it to get earthly rewards because we will lose our heavenly rewards which are unforgettable. Mans rewards are nothing compared to the rewards God gives.
It is sad when someone gives you something and they are looking back to you for something in return. This means they didn’t give it from the heart, but with ulterior motives. But when you give without expecting anything from the person, then your heavenly Father rewards you. Most folks, when they get earthly rewards they treasure it until it becomes an idol. This is why God tells us in Matthew 6:19-24 to have heavenly rewards instead of earthly ones, because it is more beneficial and the value increases. With our savings account in heaven the value does not depreciate; nothing can damage, deface or change it, thieves can’t steal it, and the enemy has nothing to do with it.
Lord, please help us not to look at earthly prosperity, through the accumulation of things, as unforgettable. As you say in 2 Corinthians 2:9, our eyes hath not seen nor have ears heard, nor hath entered into the heart of man what the Lord has in store for those who love Him.
