There is a reward

So that men will say, "Surely there is a reward for the righteous; Surely He is God who judges in the earth."  - Psalm 58.11

Sometimes we have to wonder if we are ever going to catch a break. Sometimes we have to wonder if we are ever going to see that breakthrough we have been looking forward to. We might even, if we are not careful, wonder if this whole idea of living for God is really worth it.

But when all of this is said and done there will be a reward for the righteous. A lot of is may not get many rewards here, even though we all like to be rewarded. There won’t be books written or movies made about our lives. There won’t be special days in recognition of us. We are not going to be interviewed on the telly about all the great things we do.

Most of us will plod along our whole lives in relative obscurity.

But the Bible tells us that the struggles of this present world are not worthy to be compared to the glories which will be revealed to us in eternity. It will be worth it all when we see Christ. Life’s trials will indeed seem so small on that wonderful day.

Just hold on – our reward is coming.
