1 Corinthians 4:5
"Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then each one will receive his commendation from God." ESV
We all have reasons why we do things. Sometimes our motives are honorable and Godly. However, at other times, we have our own agenda. We want to look good in from of others. We seek favor from someone or desire personal gain. Aren't we always so quick to judge someone else's motives, but we feel justified in our own. The truth is, whatever our motive is, God will expose it for what it is. Some of us will stand embarrassed and ashamed, while others of us will be honored by our God.
Heavenly Father, we humbly ask that You will help us to search ourselves and truly know our motives before we speak or act. If our motives are displeasing to You, we ask that You reveal it to us so that we can align ourselves with Your heart and have no reason to be ashamed. In Jesus' name, Amen.
