Read Matthew 19.27-30

“And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms for My name’s sake, will receive many times as much, and will inherit eternal life.” (Matthew 19:29)


After I quoted a Scripture verse to answer his question he said, “I wish I could do that.” “Do what?” I replied. “I wish I could remember where Bible verses are and be able to answer peoples' questions like that.” I assured him, “Oh, but you can! It just takes a little time memorizing and you can do exactly what I did.” I could tell by his expression he wasn’t even remotely interested to do the work that it would take to make his wish a reality. There is reward for sacrifice and hard work. Jesus promises as much. It's true that God is very gracious and gives to us even what we don't deserve. But He is also the “Great Multiplier.” See how He exponentially increases our small but important efforts. His ways are always a wise investment.
