Luke 14:12-14Children aren't the only ones who like to get re-wards. Our Creator knows that adults are also moti-vated by incentives. His Word makes exciting promisesfor those who walk in His way.Some of these benefits are available here on earth--like fulfillment, joy, and good favor--and other bless-ings will be bestowed in heaven. As believers, we need never fear the judgment (Rom. 8:1); we are clothedin righteousness through the blood of Jesus and will not face divine wrath. But the Lord will weigh thesubstance of our works and decide upon the reward we deserve.To help us understand this, Scripture describes four crowns. The first, which is called incorruptible, isgiven to those whose great desire is to walk obediently before God. Through struggles and even failures,they continue to die to the flesh and follow the Spirit. Second, the crown of life is granted to believerswho stand firm, enduring trials without giving up or losing heart. Third, the crown of righteousness isbestowed upon those who long for Christ's appearing and walk godly lives through Him. Fourth, God willgive the crown of glory to those who share His Word with others. And as the Bible tells us, we will beawed by Jesus' glory and honored just to lay our crowns at His feet.The supreme reward is for us to manifest God's glory throughout eternity. We will experience ultimate joy in His presence forever, but we don't have to wait: we can invest today by serving Him obediently andhumbly. Done with the right motive, service blesses us now and in our life to come.

Meals forthe Elderly
Sometime in the 1960s I remem-ber my Dad telling me that he did-n’t need health insurance. He saidthat for his efforts in World War IIhe was promised to always havehealth care when he needed it, andthat it would be provided for freeby our government. He proudly as-serted that in this country we takecare of our own.The US Department of Veterans Affairs, or lovingly known as the VA, provides for health care of thesoldier after her or his service tothe country. I don’t think my Dadhad it quite right about totally freehealth care for all retired soldiers,but I think he was correct aboutour country providing care whenneeded.Indeed the VA provides in a verybig way for many men and womenwho have given military service toour country. And the need for espe-cially rehabilitation type care is onthe rise. During military conflictsin Iraq and Afghanistan, and be-cause of superb emergency and in-tensive modern health treatmentthere, soldiers have survived, likenever before, after sustainingtremendous injuries.The VA has had to develop andenhance ways to enable injuredsoldiers back to function in society.This defines rehabilitation, whichis accomplished by providing:physical therapy to enhancestrength and mobility; occupa-tional therapy to teach and im-prove ways to do activities of dailyliving; speech and language ther-apy to augment communicationskills that may have been compro-mised by injury; and psychiatricsupport for those struggling withpost traumatic stress syndromeand other mental health injuriesresulting from war. Finally, andperhaps most challenging, rehabil-itation requires adequate treat-ment for the physical andpsychological pain resulting frominjuries of combat.Our country has a special re-sponsibility for those who we putin harms way. First to provide thebest emergency and intensive carepossible in order to save theirlives. But then when they do sur-vive, we need to do everything wecan to provide for rehabilitation. If we are going to enter into theseconflicts, we had better take careof our own.
