Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. Psalm 139:23-24(NLT)
Years ago when we were struggling financially, I grew tired of believing for a breakthrough and broke down before the Lord. I cried about it for a while and then, by the grace of God, I made a decision and declared: ‘God, I am going to tithe and give offerings until the day I die, whether I ever see anything come from it or not!’
I believe with all my heart this was a test for me to see why I was really giving. The Lord wanted to reveal whether I had the right, godly motives. If I had been sure of reward, I may have only selfishly given to get something out of God.
There’s been a lot of teaching and preaching that says, ‘Do this and you’ll get that.’ But what about having a pure heart that says, ‘I want to do the right thing just because it’s right and it glorifies God’?
I urge you to test your motives today and make sure they’re not self-centered. Make a wholehearted commitment to serve God for the right reasons.
