    Yes, Jesus is building the people He saves mansions. The only true reward is those that you share the Gospel with that in turn accept it and are in heaven with you. m.youtube.com/watch?v=UFrdJ2V3r7Y

    I am not enticed by "mansions" in this life , nor the next.

    I also don't subscribe to this reward type enticement which seems more applicable for children than adults.

    Well he was a builder.

    "Jesus' adopted father Joseph was a carpenter (Matthew 13:55 & Mark 6:3). The Greek word is Teckton which means builder. Now, some say he worked with wood; building tools, doors, shelves, tables etc. = carpenter. Others say because of the region and the resources were rock, and most everything was built from rock, then he built millstones, winepresses, houses, etc. = stonemason. There is no real evidence to clarify exactly what Joseph was a builder of, but we know that he was a Teckton = Builder. Now, in the Jewish culture of that time (1st century) it was required of the father to teach the son their trade at age 12, and find a wife for them around the age of 20. Joseph being very Jewish would have adhered to this practice and began teaching Jesus at 12 his trade of being a builder (Teckton)."

    Neither am I, I am humble enough to ask Jesus for the smallest house and be a guard at the gates.

    If all your readers miss the point, then you should consider the possibility that you are at least in part responsible for failing to communicate it in an understandable manner.
    Maybe, instead of gloating at them for missing the point, you could try to make your point in such a way that they do not miss it?

    No.

    He is not preparing mansions in heaven.

    It worked with Moses?

    Does that mean you believe his writing in Numbers 12:3 ?

    English Standard Version

    Now the man Moses was very meek, more than all people who were on the face of the earth.


    I think under divine inspiration Moses could write in a matter-of-fact way how God had developed him into the meekest man upon earth.

    It is not a boast but a matter-of-fact statement of how a mortal man could be the quality of leader he was in the face of such abject insubordination. He certainly didn't start that way. After 80 years of God's dealings upon him he became like Jesus Christ - meek yet committed with great divine authority.

    I didn't miss the point, I was just trying to show how it applied to someone like myself,(and maybe show it in a different light )
    Please let me know how I misunderstood your point, as I think I understand the concept of "reward" quite adequetly (i think) to continue this discussion.

    To me the idea/concept of "heaven" is a spiritual one, not a material one, focusing one non-material "things", as opposed to material things. Therefor any physical/material enticement to change my ways , (to be "good" ), holds no sway over me. Whether it be the 40+ virgins in the Islamic (?) tradition or the ''mansions' that were mentioned at the start of this thread.
