"I delight to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart." ESV
If we are "doing" things for God, and we feel obligated, just doing our duty, then we are not really doing anything for Him at all. Doing Godly things because we know we're supposed to is living by the law. Doing God's will from a pure and willing heart brings delight to our souls no matter how difficult His will is for us. It is knowing God is pleased that brings us joy.
Lord, we ask for Your forgiveness when we do things that we feel obligated to do or that give us applaud from others. Give us pure and willing hearts to serve Your because You are worthy of all we have to give. In Your name we pray, Amen.
