Sometimes people do the right thing for the wrong reason. Intention matters more than notoriety. For believers, doing the right thing is accompanied by doing it for the right reason.

Do I examine the motives that lead to my actions? Am I someone who actively discerns what God would have me do?

Gracious God, I am thankful for your love. I am called to live out my gratitude by examining my intentions. Grant me a discerning mind and heart.
