This parable is not just teaching us about final rewards. It is also probing at the level of our motives. Why are we doing what we do? If it’s a straight reward you want, fine, you’ll get it. God will never cheat you. But that’s all you’ll get.

But if you decide to do your work for the Lord’s sake alone, you will never be disappointed.
