Heavenly Rewards Analogy

I cleaned the backyard today with the help of my 1 year old daughter. I would pull up the weeds and she would carry a few of them to the weed pile. 
When we went to show off her hard work I gave her full credit for everything we had accomplished together- not because she had genuinely accomplished everything herself, but because of how much I enjoy giving.  Yes I did all the work and she put in a token amount of help, but it made me so proud that she helped I was happy to give her all the credit.

I understand the idea of a heavenly reward better now.
