Eternal Rewards
By Randy Alcorn
God promises great reward for those who have served him faithfully. God will reward every servant for this life's labor. God will reward generously. God rewards what we do, not what we believe. God rewards us for kindness to the undeserving. God rewards us for caring for our brothers in need. God rewards us when we care for those too poor or incapacitated to pay us back.God rewards us for wise and productive use of the resources and opportunities he has given us.
