The Work That God Rewards | There is More to the Secret by Ed Gungor

What is the work that God rewards?

Boy Picking Wildflowers

Imagine for a moment two brothers, Bobby and Joey.

These two brothers went to their father one morning and asked for new bikes. Their father is left with a choice:

  • Give them the money. He has more than enough to do so.
  • Make them earn the money.

Their father doesn’t want Bobby and Joey to be takers, so he chooses option 2.

The family lives near a field of wildflowers, so the father makes a deal with the boys. For every bundle of wildflowers they pick, dad will give them each one dollar.
