Two men owned farms side by side. One was a bitter atheist, the other a devout Christian. Constantly annoyed at the Christian for his trust in God, the atheist said to him one winter, “Let’s plant our crops as usual this spring, each the same number of acres. You pray to your God, and I’ll curse him. Then come October, let’s see who has the bigger crop.”
When October came the atheist was delighted because his crop was larger. “See, you fool,” he taunted, “what do you have to say for your God now?”
“My God,” replied the other farmer, “doesn’t settle all his accounts in October.”
As Christians we should always understand, that because God wants us to be rewarded eternally, he only provides for us as much resources to raise the eternal treasures in heaven, and not a full earthly reward for us to swim in it and lose the eternal perspective of the importance of living life in the will of God and for the Glory of God which brings eternal dividends.
