“And this I pray,…that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ.” Philippians 1:9,10. Godly living involves the secret attitudes of the heart that give birth to actions.. Right conduct is important, to be sure, for without it our testimony will be ineffective. But the believer knows that sin has polluted his entire being, and that it’s possible to do the right thing for the wrong reason. A kind and generous deed, for example, can actually be tinged with strong elements of selfishness. Let’s seek to glorify God in everything we do. Our conduct will then be governed by fixed motives instead of mixed motives. Reasons that sound good, aren’t always good sound reasons.
