Overall this was a pretty good book, but there was one quote that was absolutely phenomenal. It was something that stood out to me then and one that I still think about years later. I want ecstasy, not transformation; I want the warmth of the womb, not a new birth. I want a pound of the Eternal in a paper sack. Three dollars of Him is sufficient. A sack full, nothing more.

And after all those beautiful things, you will get ripped off occasionally. If we serve others long enough, we will suffer wrong treatment for doing right things. Servants will suffer persecution. Rejection — struck down, shoved aside, or cast off.
Even though we may faithfully and consistently do our job, help, serve, and give to others, we can expect on occasion to be thrown aside and rejected. Truths to claim Here is the 1st truth to claim when enduring the consequences of suffering: Nothing touches me that has not passed through the hands of my heavenly Father.
The 2nd truth to claim is this: Everything I endure is designed to prepare me for serving others more effectively. We humans are impressed with size and volume and noise and numbers.
When he rewards servants, it will be based on quality - which means everybody has an equal opportunity to receive a reward. Hebrews - 12 - For God is not unjust; he will not overlook your work and the love that you showed for his sake in serving the saints, as you still do.
And we want each of you to show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope to the very end, so that you may not become sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. God remembers our work - each individual act. He takes note of the love within us that prompted the deed.
We forget, but God remembers. We see the action; God sees the motive. Even the best of servants get weary. So let us not grow weary in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvest time, if we do not give up. So then, whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all, and especially for those of the family of faith. It begins with thoughtful things - an understanding embrace of one who is hurting, a brief note to one who is lonely and feeling unappreciated and forgotten, a cup of cool water for one whose lips are parched from the hot blast of a barren desert when all seems futile and worthless.
God takes special notice of all these efforts. God takes special note of the heart - he knows the love behind our actions. Special and specific rewards are reserved in heaven for those who practice the art of unselfish living.
