Maybe you're not familiar with some very important and insightful scriptures that address issues of "eternal rewards." Some people "assume" that God will reward everyone equally the same that make it to heaven. Although just making it to heaven is the greatest reward any of us can be given of God ... the Holy Bible indicates that joys in heaven we will be given may be greatly influenced by what we do after we have made Jesus our Savior and Lord here on earth. Will investing our time, talents and treasures (finances) in God's work before we get to heaven affect to any degree what heaven will hold for each of us? Scripture indicates: "YES!"
Seriously consider this portion of scripture were Jesus says:
"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where thieves do not break in and steal. For where you treasure is, there your heart will be also." (Matthew 6:19-21).
Obviously Jesus is telling us that pleasing God needs to be the object of our love and focus ... not just what we can get ("earthly rewards") during our stay here on earth. If our only concerns are to use our time, giftings and finances to seek earthly pleasure, Holy Scripture says we are unwise, in light of eternity.
The apostle Paul was taken to the third heaven (See: 2 Corinthians 12:4) and heard inexpressible words He was not allowed to specifically talk about when he came back to earth. Could Paul's clear declaration in 2 Corinthians 9:6 of giving and receiving be a "strong hint" of some of what he heard in the third heaven when he states?:
"But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully."
The Holy Spirit through Paul's statement of sowing and reaping sounds as matter-of-fact as the Law of Gravity. Try to violate gravity and you suffer the consequences, right? Helping (sowing into) ministries like Precious Testimonies that glorify Jesus Christ and God's Word, and are helping people either come to Jesus Christ and/or grow in their relationship with Christ is how we can invest or partner with Jesus to have the Father's will accomplished here on Earth ... and "lay up for ourselves treasures in heaven" in the process.
What greater "treasures" can we lay up in heaven for God and ourselves than lost souls from earth?
Remember however ... the one thing we can't do in heaven is lead a sinner to Christ.
What better way can you think of to sow -- to help advance the Kingdom of God in the lives of others?
