My Motive

......but the Lord looketh on the heart. 1Samuel 16:7 (last verse)

And Jesus sat over against the treasury and beheld (watched, explanation mine) how the people cast money into the treasury. Mark 12:41a

Jesus watched the people to see how they gave what they were giving.

Why do you do what you do?

Do you give your offering and tithe because you love the Lord or because you are afraid something terrible like sickness might come on you and the devourer will ravage you?

Do you still live the Lord as at the very beginning when all that matters is just loving Jesus?

Why do you go to church?

Is it because you think you must go or because you love the Lord sincerely and you love fellowshipping  with brethren?

Why do you do what you do?

What is your motive?

The Lord knows every one of us. He knows what we are thinking, He sees our hearts, He knows why we do what we do.

Do you seek revenge when others offend you or do you forgive even though you are hurting?

Do you believe that every child of God is blessed and created to prosper hence no need to envy others?

Do you give to people because of an ulterior motive or you give because you know the bible says it is more blessed to give than to receive?

Whatever your reason is for doing what you do, remember every man shall reap what he sows.
