A. Reward of humility and fear of the LORD

"The reward of humility and the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord"

Humility or "anavah" in Hebrew meaning:

1. condescension (voluntary humiliation) , modesty

2. gentleness, humility, meekness

Fear or "yirah" in Hebrew meaning:

1. fear

2. reverence

The word used is reward or by, can also mean compensation of humility and reverence for the LORD are not only one but three. The LORD is our Real Employer here on earth and we are His employees, He is the LORD and we are His servants.

Proverbs 3:16 (Amplified Bible)

3:16 Length of days is in her right hand, and in her left hand are riches and honor.

So it's clear that this life is not just life, but long satisfying life. We live 120 years because of the LORD.

Genesis 6:3 (Amplified Bible)

6:3 Then the Lord said, My Spirit shall not forever dwell and strive with man, for he also is flesh; but his days shall yet be 120 years.

1 Timothy 4:8 (Amplified Bible)

4:8 For physical training is of some value (useful for a little), but godliness (spiritual training) is useful and of value in everything and in every way, for it holds promise for the present life and also for the life which is to come.

Proverbs 21:21 (Amplified Bible)

21:21 He who earnestly seeks after and craves righteousness, mercy, and loving-kindness will find life in addition to righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God) and honor.

Matthew 5:6 (Amplified Bible)

5:6 Blessed and fortunate and happy and spiritually prosperous (in that state in which the born-again child of God enjoys His favor and salvation) are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God), for they shall be completely satisfied!

Illustration: try making a polygon with less than 3 sides, of course, it's impossible, it always starts with 3 sides: riches, honor and long life.

B. Riches, honor and life

"is riches and honor and life"

Riches or "osher" in Hebrew meaning:

1. wealth

2. riches

Honor or "kabod kabod" in Hebrew meaning:

1. weight

2. splendor, glory

Life or "chay" in Hebrew meaning:

1. fresh

2. strong

3. be old

4. alive, appetite, lifetime

5. maintenance

Psalms 112:1-3 (Amplified Bible)

112:1 PRAISE THE Lord! (Hallelujah!) Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who fears (reveres and worships) the Lord, who delights greatly in His commandments.

112:2 His [spiritual] offspring shall be mighty upon earth; the generation of the upright shall be blessed.

112:3 Prosperity and welfare are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.

Isaiah 33:6 (Amplified Bible)

33:6 And there shall be stability in your times, an abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge; the reverent fear and worship of the Lord is your treasure and His.

Matthew 6:33 (Amplified Bible)

6:33 But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.

Three physical rewards a believer will receive in this life here on earth are riches, honor and life. These three go hand in hand and cannot be separated. What are riches if you have gained them corruptly, you don't have any honor left and you surely don't have life with you.

IX. CONCLUSION:

Praise, worship and thank You very much LORD JESUS for I have already received riches, honor and life from You, the Source of Everything here on earth and in this life.
