Motive is EVERYTHING!
So often, we put forth our best efforts only to be disappointed when people are not pleased. We are frustrated when misunderstood, angered when not appreciated, and hurt when taken for granted. Each of these emotional responses speak to our need for Kingdom focus.
As people of God, our desire to please people is indicative that we've the incorrect motive. Our goal must be to please God. Attempts to make people happy will always fail. People are not perfect, so even when our works are exemplary, their reactions are not sure nor consistent. God is not like man. He rewards every good work and affirms those who seek Him. He honors those who work for His glory.
Everything you do, consider only the audience of The ONE!
