People often lack any faith at all when it comes to be rewarded by God. No Perfectionist here, my brother once asked me if I had my choice I would join a ministry or go to a College.
I told him College is better option (since I was not ready to sacrifice.)
To be frank I learned allot of life lessons in college, interacted with drunkards, thieves, psychos; of course all of the are college student. Probably did every stupid ass thing other than drinking and smoking. Usually Christian are these middle class people, Oh we such nice goodie goodie people who frankly live in their own wonderland. Saying this what they think is literally literally opposite to the letters of the Bible.
Its like expecting Engineers to have Analytic mind , but they only do things that think works, never questioning themselves.
So As I was saying sure college was a unpleasant but interesting experience but there are many ways to get that. It wasn’t certainly what I expected it to be. Sure If too chased after CGPA and GPAs initially itself , things would have been different.
But my point is Serving God has allot of perks. With respect to any Job there is your interest to do the job and and the payment
So many religious people who serve God allot and have a recognition in the society. But they make it look like a unconditional sacrifice to get the pat on the back. Well done , or wow wish I had your dedication. Even well meaning people scare away people with their approach.
But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.
Imagine you are working for a company , where they paying you really badly compared to another company with same Job but better salary. Trust me God is not a cheap scape.
Matthew 19:27 ,28
Then Peter said to him, “We’ve given up everything to follow you. What will we get?”
Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
God is not a cheap scape despite what religious people have to say.
If you say we must do for love sake alone , I personally can look you in the eye and say you are completely full of shit, or the technical term would be hypocrite .
If disciples who served God and Christ so much asked boldly this question and Jesus did not get offended one iota. I don’t see why so many religious people are hesitant talking plainly about such scriptures.
Actually Job prospective of Preachers and Ministers are much better than even rich Godly Christian business man in the world. Because they will receive more reward since they are CORE field. Christians like me don’t belong to core field. Sounds weird the way I am talking then you are not a Engineer 😁😁
So Apostle Paul probably be much richer and more respected than Solomon the King himself in heaven.
Food for thought 😁😁
If you are offended, then please be offended you will by mistake question your self 😜😜😜
