Many find their only motivation from seeking ways to maintain life’s demands. If paying bills is your only motivation, that’s what life will be about. Develop a passion for discovering a serving type purpose!!!
There are TWO master motivators :
1 - Fear / Worry; 2 - Love / Passion Which of these masters you now???
Survival fears may motivate love & passion actions. That is normal and OK if it does not become a vision destroyer.
Love and passion should also become the motivation for a creative purpose. Let’s make sure that happens!!!
Remember an earlier EFC lesson about multiple motives?
1 Samuel 17:26 David asked the men standing near him, “ What will be done for the man who kills this Philistine and removes this disgrace from Israel ? Who is this uncircumcised (unrepentant) Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God ???” (Two motives are expressed)
Most activities involve two motives:
A primary motive: Servanthood.
A secondary motive: Filling o ur needs.
When the primary remains 1 st expect our Lord’s BLESSINGS.
When the secondary becomes 1 st we may miss the blessing.
We may be reduced to depending only on resources and intellect in our motivation to achieve our goals and visions.
Are God’s blessings prevailing in your activities?
