Everyone likes to be rewarded for the things they do, the effort they put out, the time and money they spend or invest in people or things, and it does not matter where either; it could be at home, work, school or church, we want to feel appreciated or special, or that it was worth it. However most people fail to realize that what or who you invest most of your time, money, and effort in, is who or what you will be rewarded with; everyone has a reward coming to them whether it’s good or bad it all depends on the person. Be not deceived, God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man sowed that shall he also reap…(Galatians 6:7-10); it’s simple if you give kindness your reward is kindness, if you dish out hate your reward is hate.
There is a reward for righteousness, and righteous people (Psalm 58:11; Proverbs 11 :18), and for the unrighteous ( 2 Peter 2:13; Proverbs 24:20). Our Heavenly Father loves diligence and faithfulness, that’s why “He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6). It is written that we should seek God first and His righteousness, and He will take care of our needs (Matthew 6:33), that’s what I call a great investment, because your reward is great; you have a great reward when you do good, when you are righteous (Psalm 19:9-11; Matthew 5:12; Luke 6:23&35).
What kind of reward are you looking for? The ones you put on a shelf that has only momentary and temporary rewards or the one that gives you salvation and lasts for ever. As Christians the only reward we should be looking for is well done thou good and faithful servant, and like Paul we can boldly state, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith, henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous judge, shall give me on that day (2 Timothy 4:7-8). Listen friends time, money or anything invested in the God of the universe yields great rewards(Matthew 10:40-42).
