“And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” Hebrews 11:6

My daughter is playing basketball for the fourth season, but this year it is in a different league with a completely different set of kids. I’ve noticed something about these players: they are much more passionate about playing. They seem to “want” it more than the teams she played with previously.

As I watched them play and thought about the difference, I remembered that in this league, there is a tournament at the end of the season. A local businessman charters a bus and takes the winners of that tournament to an NBA game! No wonder those kids play as hard as they do. They know their hard work will pay off in a big way!

We have a reward waiting on us, too. Scripture tells us that God rewards those who diligently seek Him – we just need to have faith.

The rewards of seeking after Him are better (and more eternal) than anything that we could gain on earth. When will you get into the game?
