2 Chronicles 15:7
But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.
When we labor for man, we often seek rewards, accolades, monetary gifts, etc. But are we expecting the same when we SERVE God? Sometimes we expect immediate gratification after being faithful to His word and doing works to honor Him. As Saints, we must become servants for the Lord, workers for the kingdom, and Souljas for His army - not for our benefit, but for the building of His Kingdom. So be encouraged Saints... When you serve God wholeheartedly, don't expect immediate gratification and just know that your works have not be done in vain.
