Rewards of Good Behavior . . . .
As believers in Jesus, we will receive rewards one day. Second Corinthians 5:10 says that everyone will "receive the things done in eht body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad." But to get a reward should not be our motivation for right living. Neither is it to earn salvation. Living out of love for God and pleasing Him should be our heart's desire. When we love God, we make it our aim to please Him who first loved us and to serve Him with pure motives. The best reward will be to be with Him! Our desire to please God is our highest motive for obeying Him.
