Check Your Motives . . . .
We all can fall into the trap of wrong motives. It is possible to make friends to serve our own needs, not simply to be friendly. We may sing in the choir to receive the commandation of people, not to bring glory to God. Even our giving can be done for selfish reasons. Remembering Simon and the little girl, let's check our motives and ask God to help us make them pure. Man weighs the deeds, but God weighs the intentions.
