§ What is Pro-Life Unity?

To achieve Pro-Life Unity we will establish standards that we all agree upon, and efforts that we all regularly participate in. By working together we can challenge the culture of death and the apathy which is pervasive in our society.

Matthew 6:6 (Pt. 5)  Thought/Prayer:  Expect a Reward?  Topics:  2 at end.

“But you, when you pray, enter into your inner room, and having shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.”  WEB (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

If we desire rewards from God, will they be as meaningful when they come?  In other words, if we work for Him and his kingdom, and we have in mind that we do earn rewards for different things we do (whether spiritual or tangible), should we expect them?

Well, the answer to this question can be viewed in more ways than one.  First, yes, we can expect rewards from our Father in Heaven.  As this scripture tells us,  He, for one, will reward us for our time spent in prayer.  But do we go into our closet thinking about rewards?  Might diminish the time we spend there it seems.

And, if we are serving Him in daily life, is it OK to add up our “points” at the end of the day?  Well, let’s see.  I called on an elderly invalid; I took food to a sick friend; I helped in the church nursery for a long time today.  Mmmm.  Probably racked up at least a 100 celestial points there.  Oh really.  This cannot be a joyful way to serve the Lord, always thinking about what I will receive on the other end of things.  No, our service to Him must have no strings-of-reward attached.  And it’s probably pretty easy to avoid such shallow thoughts;  we just serve, and the rewards come at His appointed time and in His way.

Lord, it is so good that You want to reward us.  Let it be, Lord, that we just serve You without thought of getting any thing back.  Let us just wholeheartedly put ourselves into Your service, and help us to let that be the main point of all we do.  Whether we are working in the pro-life arena or otherwise, help us to thank you for the rewards we do become aware of as we walk our days.

Topics:  Pray for a thankful heart when we do receive rewards from God.  If we are thankful, we probably are not expecting anything from Him in return for our service.  And that’s a good thing.
