Motivated From The Heart

We can do all the right things
And be eloquent in what we say,
But if we don’t have love in our hearts,images9zhoyofy
What we do and say is in vain

 

We can give everything to those in need,
Even sacrifice all our time,
But if we don’t have God’s love inside,
It’s as if our faith is blind

 

The only motivation we should have
Is God’s compassionate heart,
To really have God’s mercy and grace
For the many lost in the dark

 

Touch us again with your love
And a desire for the lost
To show them there is a better way,
To lead them to Jesus cross

 

So they, too, may be deeply touched
With your saving grace, O Lord,
And know the missing link is you,
The key that unlocks the door

 

For you have reconciled us, Lord,
Back to our Father above,
To have meaningful relationship
And receive His eternal love

 

So, may our walk be blameless, Lord,
Reflecting who you are
Let nothing we do be in vain,
But be motivated from the heart.

Love Is Priceless

IT is not the deed we do,

Though the deed be ever so fair,

But the love that the dear

Lord looketh for, Image result for helping others

Hidden with holy care

In the heart of the deed so fair.

The love is the priceless thing,

The treasure our treasure must hold;

Or ever the Lord will take the gift,

Or tell the worth of the gold

By the love that cannot be told.

Highest Motivation Challenged

Why we do what we do is crucially important, as it relates to our service to God, working lives, and career.

This is why Paul challenged the Ephesians to do their work, ” not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men.”

We should check our motives in everything that we do. If we do any work or service to merely earn “pay”, whether for accolades, approval from a supervisor, to outshine a co-laborer, or worse to make others look bad. Yes, one could say the motivation is definitely out-of-place.

Its tight; but its right. Ouch!

We fall short of the highest motivation-which should be simply to do our best, as pure evidence of our love and devotion to God.

Lets all do everything ” as to the Lord,” gratefully performing each and every task that He has given us to do.  Because in the end, only what we do for Him will be granted reward anyway.

“Not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart.” Ephesians 6:6
