Faithful Rewards?

His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. Matthew 25:23

Remember when Jesus was talking about the talents? He said the same thing to all three men; (two were faithful and one wasn’t) He said, “Thou hast been faithful over a few things . . . I will now give you a gold house to live in, a pair of wings to fly with, and also an harp!” No, all of those things hadn’t anything to do with what He was talking about. He said, “Thou hast been faithful over a few things.” What was the reward? A gold crown? An harp? No, the reward was the lifting up of a quality of faithfulness, which the two men earned here, and projecting it upon a new plane over there—multiplied!

The reward was not the material things which most hymn writers put in singing books. The reward for those men was the faithfulness which they had acquired HERE, multiplied and projected upon a new level; on a new plane. Jesus Said “Thou hast been faithful over a few things—you will also now be faithful over many things.” -
