Day Eight – הַיּוֹם שְׁמוֹנָה יָמִים שֶׁהֵם שָׁבוּעַ אֶחָד וְיוֹם אֶחָד לָעמֶֹר
May the LORD reward your work, and your wages be full from the LORD, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to seek refuge.
“Lost Cat – $200 Reward”
People use rewards to create incentives for people to act. In regards to a general sense of indifference to a lost pet, a reward increases the felt urgency to all who would seek the payoff. What rewards does God have for those who seek Him? In Hebrews, faith is coupled with believing that God exists and that He rewards those who seek Him. We are saved by God’s grace and at the same time He provides increase based upon simple rules of sowing and reaping. (Gal 6:7). These principles don’t guarantee God will increase all planting but His plans will always flourish.
- What is God’s idea of reward in this life and the life to come?
- How does God give us desires? How are you doing in seeing Him fulfill those desires? (See Psalm 37:4-8)
- How do I communicate favor and acceptance to another person?
- How can I share common plans and goals with my family, friends, or others, that God has put into my life? How do we share the fruits of our labors together?
