“But on the judgment day, fire will reveal what kind of work each builder has done. The fire will show if a person’s work has any value.”
—1 Corinthians 3:13
A while back I went to my grandson’s soccer game, and I noticed a problem with sports for kids today: they don’t keep score. The rationale is that everyone is a winner. However, this doesn’t prepare kids for real life. In real life there are actual winners, and there are actual losers.
And by the way, God doesn’t say that everyone is a winner. In fact, the Bible teaches that the Lord will judge Christians one day in Heaven at the Judgment Seat of Christ. There He will reward us for our faithful service to Him.
He will give rewards to those who have achieved things for Him. And those who didn’t achieve much for Him won’t receive any rewards.
