James 4:2-3 (NLT):
You want what you don’t have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous of what others have, but you can’t get it, so you fight and wage war to take it away from them. Yet you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it. And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure.
Sometimes in life we must perform a “heart check.” Not physically but spiritually. We must make certain we are doing everything with the correct motive. If we are not, we must change.
Lord, I give You permission to tell me if I’m doing everything with the proper motive. If I’m not, please tell me. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen!
