v8 – You and God’s Rewards
A one page thought.
Perhaps some of us see a reward as a kind of bribe, a selfish motivation which risks devaluing a noble cause. Our ideal is to serve God out of gratitude and love with no interest in additional rewards. But is this the right attitude? Of course we are saved by grace and this is no reward for good behaviour (Eph. 2:8-10). But what if God has chosen to dispense rewards to you and me depending on how you and I live on earth? Is it really so ‘spiritual’ to ignore such Scriptural references to ‘rewards’?
