Why Do You Do It?
Do you wash your food before you eat it because you want to consume things that are clean and healthy, or because you are afraid of germs and getting sick?
Do you get medical checkups because you want to maintain yourself in the best possible condition, or because you are afraid there might be something wrong with you?
Did you plan a wonderful holiday meal, just recently, because you love to entertain and serve, or because it was expected of you, and you were afraid to let people down?
Do you pray and go to church because you love God and want a closer relationship with him, or because you are afraid that the relationship has somehow been damaged or neglected and needs to be repaired?
Above are four behaviors: You practice cleanliness, you see your doctor, you entertain, and you go to church.
They look the same to the outside world. They can have very different motivations. Your intention makes a world of difference to your inner being.
Fear always has, and always will, attract more fear.
Love always has, and always will, attract more love.
So I challenge you to take an in-depth look at your life and why we do the things we do.
Why do you do what you do?
