Check My Motives

photo-1456324504439-367cee3b3c32I don’t know about you, but I have to keep my motives in check.

Constantly.

Even when I think I’m in a good place and have pure motives, if I’m not attentive to and honest about my motives, I will slip into a place I don’t want to be.

I don’t want to do the right thing for the wrong reasons. I certainly don’t want to do the wrong thing, believing I have the right reasons.

When my motives are in check, I might do some tough, uncomfortable things, but at least I know I can trust God for the strength and wisdom as I step into them.

What are you doing (or not doing)? Check your motives.

What are you assuming or justifying? Check your motives.

What are you thinking? Check your motives.

I have found God checks my motives better than anyone because he knows how to correct them. But it takes constant humility.

  1. I can so relate to this. We are having different struggles in our lives, but your faithful writing inspires me to keep my eyes on Him instead of so much on the rocks in my way. For what it’s worth, I have kept you in my thoughts and prayers as you navigate this difficult
    Journey.
