Doing It For The LORD: The Right Motives (Chinese/English)

Proverbs 212 Every man’s way is right in his own eyes, But the Lord weighs and examines the hearts.

箴言 21:2人所行的,在自己眼中都看为正,惟有耶和华衡量人心。

Right Motives


All of us love to do things for God, and we don’t mind receiving praise for it. Amen!  My former Pastor Mark said that we live for an audience of One-we do things for God and God alone.  God not only watches what we do, He also observes why we do it.  Which raises the following question:  Are our motives pure in serving God?


The Lord is more concerned about our motives than the actions we engage in.  We may be able to fool man, but we can never fool God.  He knows our hearts, our motives, and our thoughts.  So, when you decide to do anything for the Lord, make sure that it is out of love for Him and concern for your fellow man.


God bless you
