“All a man’s ways seem innocent to him, but motives are weighed by the LORD.”(Proverbs 16:2)
Isn’t that the truth? We can all rationalize away the things that we’ve done. “Gee! I didn’t mean to!” That should make it all good, right? Maybe…maybe….
The key message today is “Examine your motives.” Don’t kid yourself. Look within. Shine a cold, hard light into your core and be sure that when God weighs your motives you are considered righteous. This is not something that is subject to the judgment of others – it’s just between you and the Almighty. But it’s not a deal you want to jack with. You know what I mean?
