Where's the reward?

There isn't any reward system in God's love. He loves because He is love, not because of what He gets in return. But there has been and still is a whole lot of reward system in the love that we are often taught in the Christian faith. What else can we expect? There is a reward system in fleshly love. We love because we are going to get something for loving.— The Rest of the Gospel: When the partial Gospel has worn you out, page 241

Yep. Show me the cash! That's our motto. But, it certainly isn't God's; his is the exact opposite—Praise God for that!
