We go to our jobs to do our work, and expect to get paid for what we do. If we go above and beyond, we expect to be noticed and recognized for it. And when it’s time for the performance review, we expect to get an increase in pay because we believe all those things we did are worthy of an increase.
We think, the things we did wrong, the mistakes we made, are nothing compared to the things we did right. We believe, going above and beyond, and everything we did right, out-weigh the things we did wrong. Therefore, we feel those things that we did wrong do not need to be discussed. But, during the performance review, the things we did wrong and the things we did right are both reviewed. And based on our total performance, everything we have done, both right and wrong, is what we will receive.
The same is with our Heavenly Father. We shall be judged by God when it’s time for us to meet Him in glory. All that we have done, good and bad, we will be rewarded for.
Whatever you do, do it for God, not man, and God will reward you. Remember, any wrong you do, you will receive for the wrong you have done. Therefore, cling to those things that are good, and watch the increase you receive based on your performance!
Psalm 125:4 (KJV) – do good, O Lord, unto those that be good, and to them that are upright in their hearts.
Matthew 16:27 (KJV) – for the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.
Colossians 3:23-25 (KJV) – and whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
Romans 12:9 (KJV) – let love be without dissimulation, abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
