Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

Getting Rewards Right, Part 2 of 2 (You Can't Redo Life)

August 19, 2021

We don’t always understand the reasons, but God chooses to give some of His children more than others—more abilities, more money, and better health. When we realize that the Giver is the one who distributes the gifts, and not the receiver, we’ve come a long way in understanding how God rewards his people.
