Jesus called us with the ultimate intention to make us.
Seeking to be paid is settling for less, you must keep striving to be made.
Whatever you are been paid is corruptible and is short-lived.
But whatever you are been made is secure because whatever the Lord does is forever. Matt 4:19.
A pay may change the size of your pocket but been made is what changes your statues and destiny as it was with Peter, a local fisherman was made by Jesus to a point of becoming a preferred leader to more educated, exposed and enlightened men like Matthew (former custom officer) and the like.
Settle down, let God make you and you will be more than paid.
To be made, not to try to impress men but please God; don’t seek man’s commendations but God’s approval.
