Rewards from God are never merited as something God owes us but come as a free gift from his grace. Jesus brought this home at another time with a short story. Suppose you had a slave plowing the fields. Now when that slave came in, would you say, "Sit down and I’ll get you some food"? Rather wouldn’t a slave be told, "You, wait on me first and then see to your own food"? Would such a master thank a slave for doing only what he’s told? Then Jesus concluded, "So also you, when you have done all that was commanded of you, say, ’We are worthless slaves. We have done only what we ought to have done’" (Luke 17:10).

But what a gracious God we have! Even though we are unworthy slaves, he rewards us out of the bounty of his grace.
