Great rewards are laid up for those who fear and trust the Lord.

Oh, how great is your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear You, Which You have prepared for those who trust You in the presence of the sons of men!  Ps. 31:19 NKJV.  2mountainshomesinvalley

Great, rab, Strong’s #7227: Great, abundant, many, large in number, of major importance; chief, weighty, significant, noble, princely. It’s from the verb rabab, “to become numerous or great.”

The title rabbi is a derivative of rab. Rabbi has been defined as “my teacher,” a more exact explanation is that it means “my great one” (full of knowledge) or “my master” (great instructor). This is the reason our Lord did not allow His followers to be called by this lofty title: He stressed that we can have but one Rabbi,  and that must be the Messiah only (Matthew 23:8).

That God has laid up goodness (rewards) for those who fear (reverence) and trust (lean on) Him is confirmed by Jesus In Matthew 5:11,12.
