You Might Not Be Rewarded
By Bernadette A. Moyer
Do it for yourself! Do the right things and do them for yourself! Sounds simple, right?
How often do we do things and just expect to be rewarded? Then when we aren’t? Maybe the real rewards have nothing to do with what lives outside but rather what lives within us?
Love to love. Just for the sake of loving.
Give for giving. Just for the sake of giving.
Do for doing. Just for the sake of doing.
Work for working. Just for the sake of working.
Contribute for contributing. Just for the sake of contributing.
And the list goes on …
Do what is right and do it for you …
Let the only reward that you concern yourself with come from within and don’t think about rewards that may or may not ever come from outside of you.
Disappointment is rooted in expectations that are not met. The only disappointments we should ever entertain are the ones that we hold for ourselves, they become the meter for our soul, our character and they define us.
When we do the right things and when we do them for the right reason … we achieve peace and love from within.
When we have love and peace from within we have already achieved our greatest God given rewards.
