Don’t Forfeit Your Eternal Rewards

But many who are the greatest now will be least important then, and those who seem least important now will be the greatest then. Matthew 19:30

Jesus turned the world’s values upside down. Consider the most powerful or well-known people in our world. How many got where they are by being humble, self-effacing, and gentle? Not many! But in the life to come, the last will be first—if they got in last place by choosing to follow Jesus.

Don’t forfeit eternal rewards for temporary benefits. Be willing to make sacrifices now for greater rewards later. Be willing to accept human disapproval, while knowing that you have God’s approval.
