Reward in heaven is a difficult point to sell to others with any certainty. Many do not believe in heaven or else believe that all will have equal share. That is to say that either there is no reward for a lifetime of patient suffering or no punishment for the callous perpetuation of other's great need. The certainty may be better observed in the product of each uncertain viewpoint through the course of an individual's life and society as a whole.

It is certain that those without the framework of a reward have a wide open allowance to whatever they feel deserved by them in this life. Not that all wrongfully exploit this self allowance, but that opportunity is with certainty much greater and the accumulative product is one entirely of self.

It too is certain that those with an equal or unconditional future mindset have a much narrowed or closed off allowance placing the burden entirely upon God's acceptance of any and all human behaviors and product rather than any proper/reverent/transformative response of individuals to God's obvious immutable and perfect character and better desires for His creation. It is not any special reward at that point logically, it is merely further allowance for their own actions and holding God responsible for any present want or need.

In either case consequence is reduced to whatever one thinks they can manage and thereto whatever they feel society can manage for them as well.
