Check Your Motives

Matthew 6:1-18, I Corinthians 10:31

One must be careful to check motives often.  It is a great trap to get caught up in putting on a show or acting certain ways to impress others or to get attention.  It is important that we have the right motives for what we say and what we do.  Trying to impress others and draw attention to self is hypocritical. 

It is vital that the obedient believer conducts their life out of obedience to the Word of God and with a desire to please God.  The answer is just to be genuine and honest in conduct.

  1. Be Friendly
  2. Be Kind
  3. Be honest

Be obedient

Live your life not to impress others but to bring glory to God.  Be a light in the world and have God’s blessing on your life.  Why you do what you do is important.
