“Let all that you do be done in love.” 1 Cor. 16:14
We all can be guilty of doing the right thing, with the wrong motivation. God’s word is clear that there is only one way we should be operating: out of love.
Love for Him. Love for our fellow man. Love for ourselves.
Are you serving in the church? Make sure you’re doing it in love. Doing laundry and cooking meals for your family? If your motivation isn’t love, that will get old real quick! Exercising, eating right, taking care of ourselves should be out of a spirit of love, not one of pride or even self-loathing.
How could your day be different if you strive to do everything in a spirit of love?
