Satisfied Sunday’s: Beware of Doing the Right thing for the Wrong Reasons
What does that statement mean? In life, we strive to push ourselves to the limit in certain areas.We can work ourselves to death and not see any fruit come forth. (In the timing of when we want to see the results). We can be so busy and driven that we do not have the time to rest. We can also lose focus on what really matters and counts. Do not get caught up in doing something for the wrong reasons.
Make sure your intentions are pure. We can easily focus on the talent, money, stats, impressing people and protocol and forget all about Jesus. Can you imagine how people want to be seen doing what’s right, but in their hearts they never meant it? Nothing matters without Jesus. Your energy and effort is all futile if he is not in the center of your focus.
Sometimes people can befriend you because they have “a different agenda”. While all the time you thought that they were there for you, instead it was for another reason. Matthew 6:2: “Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward”.
If you operate in doing things with an ulterior motive, then your foundation will come a part. There is no foundation without Jesus.If you do not put Jesus in everything you do, you are only working for yourself. Ask God to create in you a clean heart, so that he is able to guide you on the direction that he wants to take you. Ask can your desire be pure and to not become entangled up in Satan’s web of “performance.” May God bless you and may you continue to get better and better each day ♥
