I want my reward now!

One often hears the expression “Heaven will reward you for this kind act”. That denotes a future event–the reward. But, I want my blessings NOW, not in the future! This is much like a grade one student told to study hard and you’ll receive your rewards when you graduate. The grade one student has no concept of future rewards. He wants them NOW, but in reality, rewards–or any reaction to an action, usually does  come in the future.

What is it about creation that, for so many events in our lives, we have to wait for our reward?
