Rewards for God’s Servants

Bible on Money

The Reward of Service

40 “Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. 41 Whoever welcomes a prophet as a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward, and whoever welcomes a righteous person as a righteous person will receive a righteous person’s reward. 42 And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.”

Matthew 10:40-42

Prostitute of Proverbs: Pay Attention to Parents’ Wisdom — Proverbs 5 #2

King Solomon in all his human wisdom fell for idolatrous adulteresses, and thereby failed the Kingdom went astray from God’s grace

Proverbs 5

Warning Against Adultery

1My son, pay attention to my wisdom,

turn your ear to my words of insight,

2that you may maintain discretion

and your lips may preserve knowledge.

3For the lips of the adulterous woman drip honey,

and her speech is smoother than oil;

4but in the end she is bitter as gall,

sharp as a double-edged sword.

5Her feet go down to death;

her steps lead straight to the grave.

6She gives no thought to the way of life;

her paths wander aimlessly, but she does not know it.

7Now then, my sons, listen to me;

do not turn aside from what I say.



15Drink water from your own cistern,

running water from your own well.

16Should your springs overflow in the streets,

your streams of water in the public squares?

17Let them be yours alone,

never to be shared with strangers.
.
18May your fountain be blessed,

and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.

19A loving doe, a graceful deer—

may her breasts satisfy you always,

may you ever be intoxicated with her love.

21For your ways are in full view of the Lord,

and he examines all your paths.

22The evil deeds of the wicked ensnare them;

the cords of their sins hold them fast.

23For lack of discipline they will die,

led astray by their own great folly.

Proverbs 5:1-8, 15-23

God’s Grace and Forgiveness

Jesus and the sinful woman

The Parable of the Two Sons

28“What do you think? There was a man who had two sons. He went to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work today in the vineyard.’

29“ ‘I will not,’ he answered, but later he changed his mind and went.

30“Then the father went to the other son and said the same thing. He answered, ‘I will, sir,’ but he did not go.

31“Which of the two did what his father wanted?”

“The first,” they answered.

Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you.

32For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him.

Matthew 21:28-32

Wisdom: More Profitable than Silver Proverbs 3 #1

Bible on Money

The Blessings of Wisdom

13 Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who acquires understanding,

14 for she is more profitable than silver,
and her gain is better than fine gold.

15 She is more precious than rubies;
nothing you desire compares with her.

16 Long life is in her right hand;
in her left hand are riches and honor.

17 All her ways are pleasant,
and all her paths are peaceful

18 She is a tree of life for those who embrace her,
and those who lay hold of her are blessed.

Proverbs 3:13-18

Tax-Exemption: Christ’s Children! Free From Tax — Fish Miracle #1

Silver Coin in Fish’s mouth miracle – Jesus’s tax exempt parable – Children’s Artwork

The Temple Tax

Matthew 17

24 After Jesus and his disciples arrived in Capernaum, the collectors of the two-drachma temple tax came to Peter and asked, “Doesn’t your teacher pay the temple tax?”

25“Yes, he does,” he replied.

When Peter came into the house, Jesus was the first to speak. “What do you think, Simon?” he asked. “From whom do the kings of the earth collect duty and taxes—from their own children or from others?”

26“From others,” Peter answered.

“Then the children are exempt,” Jesus said to him.

Matthew 17:26

27“But so that we may not cause offense, go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; open its mouth and you will find a four-drachma coin. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours.”

Mysterious Riches of Christ: Paul’s Prayer for Power — Ephesians 3 #2

14 For this cause, I bow my knees unto the Father our Lord Jesus Christ,
15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
16 That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man;
17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that [you] being rooted in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with the Saints what is the breadth, the length, and depth, and height;
19 And to know the love of Christ, which [surpasses] knowledge, that [you] may be filled with all the fulness of God.

Ephesians 3:14-19

Lord Jesus, please help us receive wisdom by Your Name and allow the Holy Spirit to enter into us while we attempt to understand and remember Paul’s prayer to the Ephesians and the revelation of the mystery of Christ:

He led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb,b the mountain of God. 2 There the angelc of the LORD appeared to him in a blazing fire from within a bush. Moses saw the bush ablaze with fire, but it was not consumed3 So Moses thought, “I must go over and see this marvelous sight. Why is the bush not burning up?
