I wonder how much of the things we do for others are purely selfless? Do we want to be commended for how great Christians we are?
It is important for others to know that what we do is for Christ and always to point away from ourselves to Him. Once we do things for reward for ourselves then it is wrong. Whenever the focus turns on us, we turn others away from Jesus.
Our motives matter.
During a time of worldly recession, I once asked if our spiritual life is in recession too!
Both can have a devastating effect on our lives spiritually and physically. Something needs to be done about it. Lent is a good place to start!
And so, I’ll leave you with this ‘thought for today’,
“You are free to choose, but the choices you make today will have, consequences in the tomorrows of your life.”
