God rewards those who do their duty. Your duty may take you away from your family for long periods of time – like the fighting men of Reuben, Gad, and Manasseh. Your duty may require you to stay home in your small town – like their brothers.
Joshua 22:8, “Return home with great wealth, much livestock, silver, gold, copper, iron, and great quantities of clothing. Divide the spoil of your enemies among your brothers.” Modern English Version
We each have to serve in the area in which God has called us. It may not be dramatic as a missionary or evangelist. We may not ever receive applause as a traveling musician experiences. Fame and fortune may not be our rewards but you cannot put a dollar amount on peace, tranquility, contentment, and rest.
Whatever your duty is – do it with all your might, see Ecclesiastes 9:10 and Colossians 3:23.
