1Samuel 30:24 For who will hearken unto you in this matter? but as his part is that goeth down to the battle, so shall his part be that tarrieth by the stuff: they shall part alike.
David and his 600 men have been in pursuit of an enemy that has destroyed their home town. They have taken all that they had. David’s own men are wanting to kill him. As they go in pursuit and battle 200 of the men are too tired and unable to continue on.
When they win the battle and return some of the 600 want to leave the others out. They say that if they didn’t go to the battle they should get none of the spoils of battle. David says that from now in Israel they will have an agreement. Those that go into battle and those that stay by the stuff will part alike.
That means that they will each share alike. Some need to stay by the stuff and take care of the home front. Some need to go to battle.
In the New Testament we learn that God puts spiritual fruit in our account when we send out our missionaries to the battle field. Philippians 4:17. If you go while others stay here and send you then God will reward the stayers who were “remainers” Ezra 1.
Both are needed, those who go and those who stay. God will reward all of us alike if we will just do the part that He has prepared for us to do.
Now the question is, are you doing what God wants you to do? Have you asked Him what part He wants you to play in His plan? Have you asked Him where you fit in world evangelism?
He will more than fairly reward you for the part you play in His plan!
