daily word - rewards?

Dale Cresap's picture

Do you expect to be rewarded in heaven for your good works? Is this a strong motivation for you?

My word does mention rewards in heaven, but this is more a matter of suffering patiently and doing good privately rather than good works as such. Would this be the ultimate form of delayed gratification? My transformative work in you is to make love the basis of your life. This changes your familiar transaction economy of service and payment to an economy of grace which is outpouring of love without thought of reward. So will you get a reward in heaven? If this is your primary motivation then you are not moving toward the economy of love.
