But I, the Lord, give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve.” (Jeremiah 17:10 NLT)

Martin Paulson served in the U.S. Army from 1943-1946, with D Company, 105th Infantry Regiment, 27th Infantry Division. In 1945, he boarded the USS Cecil, and headed to Okinawa, Japan. While there, he was injured and was sent home for treatment.

Letters he wrote home at that time documented his days. Sixty years later, as relatives discovered these chronicles, they felt that Martin at least deserved a Purple Heart medal that he never got. But in the end, 68 years later, at the age of 95, he received something greater: the Bronze Star for heroism in battle.

Our God is a God that rewards us for simply living faithfully & obediently for Him. His reward is blessings that money cannot buy, nor can they be bargained for for. Don’t live to be honored, which is selfishness and pride, but that His eyes find favor with you for doing what is right at all times. Live an awardable life! You are loved today!
