Good deeds deserve rewards.
Justin, the plumber who discovered hundreds of thousands of dollars in the bathroom wall of Joel Osteen's church, said he has received compensation for his assistance.
Justin will receive $20,000 from Crime Stoppers of Houston, which received the cash after the initial theft discovery, according to KSNB.
Justin had tuned in to Osteen's sermon on Sunday, hoping to hear the pastor mention his work.

"I wanted to hear [Osteen] say, 'You know, Justin, what you did was right. We understand what you did and what you could have done,'" Justin said. The plumber added that he was a "little upset."
Justin made news on Dec. 2 when he called in to a local radio show to discuss how he found 500 envelopes stuffed with money.
"We removed the tile," the plumber said. "We went to go remove the toilet. ... I moved some insulation away, and about 500 envelopes fell out of the wall. And I was like, 'Oh, wow!'"
Justin immediately called his supervisor and turned the money in. The Houston Police Department confirmed that the money was connected to a March 9, 2014, theft of cash from Lakewood Church.
