Motives and efforts…. 

Ever heard the saying you get OUT of it what you PUT IN to it? 

Some great examples of this are folks that run their first Triathlons, lose massive amounts of weight, win their first bodybuilding contest, or achieve some other life altering change for the good. 

The secret to success in each of these examples is that while they were training and working to achieve their goal, they constantly made sure their efforts matched their motives daily. 

We can use this “secret” in our everyday lives for ordinary things as well. 

This is a biblical principle that never changes! 

From being a better person, to overcoming an uncomfortable situation, if we measure our motives and match them to our efforts we will see change.. 

How well are your efforts matching your motives?... 

Check your experience… 

“Keep on the firing line of life with these motives and God will keep you unharmed.” Big Book pg 102 

Lord, let us provide the efforts needed along with the right motives to bring the healthy changes into our lives and strengthen our walk with you, AMEN. 

 “People may be pure in their own eyes, but the Lord examines their motives. Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.” Proverbs 16: 2-3

Have a blessed day y’all
