I know I’ve talked about this before, but there comes a time (every day) where we must reexamine our motivations and what is the driving force behind our actions and passions.
There is nothing wrong with wanting and desiring more, for didn’t Jesus Himself say “even if you who are evil can give good gifts to your children how much more will your heavenly father pour His spirit into you”.
But the difference between wanting more (as all children do) and doing things in hope of possession and higher station. That, friends is the definition of striving. When we please God, we know He rewards us, but we shouldn’t please Him for His rewards, but because we love Him because He first loved us.
Why do you do what you do? What master do you serve? where do your desires emanate from? Ask these questions to yourself daily. Be blessed
