STOP AND THINK – People follow incentives more than rules. (John Teevan, educational administrator)
It may be easy to follow rules, because we know exactly what is expected in terms of behavior. On the other hand, we sometimes chafe at rules that may seem to stifle our imagination or creativity. When we are given goals to achieve with rewards to be earned, it’s so much easier to work hard, follow the rules, and achieve greater goals.
Because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do. (Ephesians 6:8)
