Does God pay or have a basic salary? Do we work for God and how rewarding is it?
1 For all this I considered in my heart even to declare all this, that the righteous, and the wise, and their works, are in the hand of God: no man knows either love or hatred by all that is before them.
Reading this scripture lit up joy in my heart when I saw God is really concerned with everything in my life including my work, education, etc. To be sure I checked out the Hebrew meaning of the word “works” used in the scripture above.
1. to work, serve
1. to labour, work, do work
2. to work for another, serve another by labour 3. to serve as subjects 4. to serve (God) 5. to serve (with Levitical service) b. (Niphal) 1. to be worked, be tilled (of land) 2. to make oneself a servant.
Most Interesting, we all know that we are paid for our services rendered to men. Therefore, God also pays us for services rendered to him. Yes. Look at 1 Corinthians 15:58
This means what he describes in Matt 6:31-33 stands to be true that God is able to pay us even for seeking his kingdom and his righteousness. In other words, seeking the things of His kingdom.
God pays us for supporting his ministry. It’s like an investment that yields interest like when you invest in a bank so Paul shares this mystery in Philippians 4:19 after the church sowed into his life and ministry.
Everything you do for God comes with a prize. He rewards you or pays you.
