Who ever welcomes God’s messenger because he is God’s messenger, will share in his reward. And whoever welcomes a good man because he is good, will share in his reward. Matthew 10:41
The teaching which Christ Jesus taught about an assured reward was just by giving a cold drink of water to a follower of Jesus. This is also an act of faith in action. It is never too difficult in gaining heavenly rewards which Jesus emphasized.
Majority over looked and ignored heavenly rewards which cannot be seen or touch. However what can be seen lasts for a time but what cannot be seen lasts forever, 2 Corinthians 4:18.
There was once a rich woman who lived in Shunem. Elisha, the prophet who went to Shunem was invited to have meals in her house whenever he went there. She said to her husband that she felt that Elisha was a good man. So they offered accommodation for Elisha and his servant. After sometime, Elisha wanted to show her his gratitude for her hospitality. Since she was rich, she was not living in lack, she did not request anything materially. His servant, Gehazi however revealed to Elisha that she had no son.
Elisha asked the rich woman to come to him and he assured her, by the time the following year, a son would be granted to her. True enough, praise be the name of God, a son was indeed granted to this rich woman. A valuable gift rewarded to her for she had welcome Elisha, a good and holy man of God.
God never fails in granting rewards, on earth or in heaven!
