Some students that I have taught are motivated by earning a certain grade. They may overlook the value of and other reasons for learning. Depending on the situation, we each may experience different forms of motivation. As we consider our motivation, we need to be sure that our actions are rooted in the right reasons!
We can act out of selfish reasons. Sometimes we may not even realize that our actions are self-centered. We aren't called to act on behalf of ourselves or to build ourselves up in the eyes of those around us. We are called to act out of God's love. We are called to share God's love for His glory and for the benefit of those around us. As we serve others and show God's love, we will gain so much more than we can by serving ourselves!
Act out of God's love for all of the right reasons!
Thank You for showing me Your love and for giving me reasons to show Your love to others. Please guide my words and actions to bring glory to You. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
