"Work hard, and you will be rewarded," Zenithar teaches us. How will we be rewarded? By gold? Prestige? Many desire these things, but this is not what Zenithar hopes for us to understand.
Remember that Zenithar also teaches us to be wise in our spending, to never steal from others. The rewards he guides us to are not material—no, his rewards are the rewards of the spirit. By engaging in a ritual of production, whether you are a smith hammering out swords or a farmer tending and harvesting crops, you honor Zenithar. By participating in creation, your actions are blessed. The reward that Zenithar wishes for us to discover is in the work itself, hidden in the very act of making—the fruits of your labor are lesser prizes when compared.
