Reward of Heaven
“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.” Psalm 116:15 (ESV)
God does not cause evil to happen, but it doesn’t happen without us being better off than if it didn’t. Nothing happens without God’s knowledge, but that doesn’t mean He causes it. Even when death steals life from our family, it doesn’t happen unless the Lord God allows for a greater reward and an everlasting benefit to all involved. Our loss on earth is our reward in Heaven.
Let’s pray today that we may live as a people whose permanent home is in Heaven, not earth.
