How People Lose Their Reward 2

🔊Audio Version Here ☞ bit.ly/audio1887

1 Corinthians 13:3 (NET)
If I give away everything I own, and if I give over my body in order to boast, but do not have love, I receive no benefit.


It is difficult to imagine that one can give away everything they own and yet not be motivated by love but by something else. While Enyo was giving away many things to the needy in the front of cameras, she thought she was giving out of love, but the kind of love that does not care about the feelings and dignity of the other person receiving is not the kind that counts before God.

How many people announce to the public when they give to their children or family members? They don't announce because they gave in love to their children. But the kind of love that includes telling the whole world how you are helping is not the kind that heaven acknowledges.

The kind of love that heaven acknowledges seeks to bring glory to God and not to oneself, thus the person doing the charity understands that God doesn’t need social media to inform Him about the things done.

Go into today remembering that the kind of love that heaven rewards can only be manifested by those who are born of God. See 1 John 4:7.


Prayer: Heavenly Father, please help me from today to manifest your nature of love and bring glory to your name.
—Pst. Abraham Damilola Arigi
