Day Five: “Reward in Heaven”

Friday, May 9th, 2014

Matthew 5:11-12 - Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.  Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”

Reflection:

When reading the online news sites, the pages are usually flooded with advertisements on “proven” ways to easily make lots of money: flipping houses with other peoples’ money, investing in penny stocks, etc.

However, the passage above from the beatitudes, teaches the ways of God’s kingdom and the heart of it, unlike the world, focuses on God’s ways no matter the challenges one may face.  Therefore, we can rejoice and be glad because a great reward in heaven awaits us. We all work for rewards, such a paycheck or vacation time, why not the ultimate heavenly reward?

Spend some time presenting the challenges that we might be facing before the Lord.  As we put our trust in Him, let’s also pray that God would fill our hearts again with rejoicing for the promise of the reward that is ours in heaven because we belong to Him.
