Right now I'm wrestling through a concept that I believe I will eventually be teaching on at some point in the future. I haven't quite got my own brain around it yet, but I believe I am on to something. I'm thinking about motivations.
Everything we do it motivated by something. The question I'm working through is: what is the motivation behind all the things that I do? Do my motivations for doing things vary at different times? Here are some questions I am asking to get my brain and my spirit around this:
* Do we do things that look good on the outside because they are good things, but really have wrong motivations behind doing them?
* Is it possible that we sin more than we realize because our motivations for doing things are wrong, not necessarily the things we are doing?
* How do we constantly check our motivations to see if they are holy/righteous?
* Can we change our motivations for why we do things? How?
Partner with me in thinking about this topic. Let me know what you think. More to come on this later...
Look forward to seeing everyone on Sunday - I'm pumped about the service!
