The best deeds are the ones carried out, not just with the most generous acts but with the purest intentions. It pays to come to terms with the motives behind our actions, service and desires. Many times we may find that our motives are laced with self and ambition and not genuinely driven by love.
On the last day, when our works are brought before the Lord, the works that will stand; tried and tested are the ones that have been done in love.
As at today, there are organizations, initiatives and even businesses springing up as the days go by, one question that often comes to mind is – whether the motive behind such organizations isright, because so many people do the right things with the wrong motive all in the name of “creating impact” or “meeting a need”, even when the goals and profit from the organizations, businesses are achieved,true satisfaction comes from having the right heart towards the cause with no hidden agenda for fame or money, with no ulterior motive for seeking validation and recognition.
The right heart is propelled by love, driven by kindness and directed by God. Being at the center of God’s will is only the beginning of having the right heart, it takes carrying out every instruction as His will unfolds with the mind of Christ (Philippians 2:6-8) who made Himself of no reputation and took upon Him the form of a SERVANT, and was made in the likeness of men.
We are actually servants called to the noble cause to serve our generation and in whatever way that service comes, we need to totally and humbly let our hearts be under the scrutiny of the Holy spirit all the way, as we take the posture of submission and constant consecration.
