>>I don't think our motives can truly ever be "true and right". But the Good News is we are worse than we think we are. And God loves us even if we never get any better...>>

I am compelled to address this statement another reader made on this blog in the past. Yes, you are right God loves us, his very nature is love; however, God loves us to much to let us remain in the state we are in without discipline and correction. I don’t know when you joined the OYB family but if you have been reading along with us you will note that we have read about Israel’s and Judah’s fall into apostasy which unleashed some unpleasant consequences. The Word says our hearts can have the “true and right” (your words), motives, David did.

But now your kingdom shall not continue; the Lord has sought out [David] a man after His own heart, and the Lord has commanded him to be prince and ruler over His people, because you have not kept what the Lord commanded you.
(1 Samuel 13:14 AMP)

The writer of Proverbs stated, “Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life. “
(Proverbs 4:23 AMP)

Jesus stated: The upright (honorable, intrinsically good) man out of the good treasure [stored] in his heart produces what is upright (honorable and intrinsically good), and the evil man out of the evil storehouse brings forth that which is depraved (wicked and intrinsically evil); for out of the abundance (overflow) of the heart his mouth speaks.
(Luke 6:45 AMP)

My prayer for you is this, May God draw you near to Him and may your heart’s desire be toward Him so that He reveals to you how to have “true and right” motives. Keep reading along with us so you too find how to seek first the Kingdom of God …then all these things (including right motives) will be added unto you (Matt. 6:33)

God bless you

I love Laura Story: blessings

I love going over all the ancestors and sadly divorce and polygamy gets mentioned.

Proverbs 1822 the blessings are when a man finds a wife and a wife find a husband. I am truly blessed of almost 25 years this year. Love this
