Those Who Sow in Tears Shall Reap in Joy

Most things worth having took hard work and it is much more rewarding when you get them through effort and blessings from God. Once rewarded, it’s important to be humble; giving credit to those who helped and praising God.

These attributes of hard work, humility, and praise are brought out in in Psalm 126 as the exiles returned from Babylon and began rebuilding the Temple. After they laid the foundation, they gave thanks to the Lord, rejoiced, and then celebrated their freedom.

In the same way, we can give thanks, rejoice, and celebrate each day for our freedom from captivity because of Christ who frees from the power of sin. He fills the void of an otherwise empty life. We can give thanks to God and give Him credit for good relationships, sound character, excellent study habits, and a solid work ethic.

Even though the days ahead may have difficulty, we can still give thanks in all circumstances because there is hope in the future. Those Who Sow in Tears Shall Reap in Joy.

Continue to want others to know about this reward Jesus Christ talks about in Revelation 22:12, Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.

Each day with God is amazing when we give those who have not accepted Jesus a link to our blog or the blog of those we follow, when we pray for them, and are a positive witness for them.

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.

    AMEN! He is out of this world! Our rewards are paid out here on earth also as there is NO other joy that for a lost person to come to see who HE is. To me those are the best days of my life. That is WHY I work hard (relative term, since it is much harder to be lost and sit in hell forever).
