What Is Your Motive?


Pause frequently to assess if Love is your guiding force.

Micah 6:8

You have been told, O man, what is good, and what the Lord requires of you: Only to do the right and to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God.


What if we all lived by these words of wisdom?

The world would change for the better.

But what is right and what is the good?

Sometimes it is easy to figure out…sometimes not.

Have you ever changed your position? I know I have.

That’s why we must always be compassionate.

Jesus said it all comes down to love: loving God, neighbor and self (Matthew 22:37-39).

Always do what is good but do it with love.

When you do what is good with love…you cannot harm, hate or cast out.

Love works for oneness.

The Prophet Micah said that God is not interested in our sacrifices to prove ourselves worthy of God’s love. That’s because God already loves us infinitely…and that love is unconditional.

Let this realization sink in.

Feel it.

Know it in your heart.

This is the kind of love that makes you fall in love with such a God!

Doesn’t this kind of love make you want to “do the right and to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God”?
