Leaders do not chase comfort; they pursue vision even if it comes with risks. Don’t give up too early because you see not early rewards.
True happiness is not found in any other reward than that of being united with God. If I seek some other reward besides God Himself, I may get my reward but I cannot be happy.
Life had taught her that consequences were ugly and painful, and seldom worth the pleasure they had been bartered for.
There is a reward structure in science that is very interesting: Our highest honors go to those who disprove the findings of the most revered among us. So Einstein is revered not just because he made so many fundamental contributions to science, but because he found an imperfection in the fundamental contribution of Isaac Newton.
Enroll your body, soul and spirit and engage your time to do what you know best. Dedicate yourself to the work at hand and you will be rewarded by the fruits you will bear!
The revival of ancient benefits, a new spring-time of old flowers, and the fresh quickening of one’s own soul, are the spiritual wages of every spiritual service. In giving, a man receives more than he gives, and the MORE is in proportion to the worth of the thing given.
Apathy is a trap. There is no challenge… so there is no reward. Remember, there is always free cheese in a mousetrap.
Intimacy with GOD is most exhilarating, most amazing, most exciting and most rewarding of all.
Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God’ (Hebrews 12:1-2). Jesus was motivated to endure by anticipating the joy of His reward. No amount of hardship and struggle could deprive Him of that anticipation.
Persistence and determination are always rewarded.
