The world tells us to always practice good morals and do the right thing. However, we cannot achieve morality without Jesus; our motives matter. The mistake many people make is trying to live moral lives for others’ approval, instead of for God’s approval. Doing good through self- effort simply to please others is a temporary motivation that will not last; doing good because the Holy Spirit has shed God’s love in our hearts is what He really wants to see. Trusting Him to work in us and change us on the inside, until everything we do is motivated by love, elevates us to a level we cannot reach on our own.
