Why would a person help their neighbor pull weeds or trim the hedges? Why would a man walk a little old lady across the street? What is their intention or motive? Is it to be seen by others? Is it done to make them feel good about themselves? Is it done so they can brag about it to their friends?
In this present age, in this lost world in which you and I live today, our main motivation should be to bring honor and glory to God. It doesn’t matter if we’re pulling weeds for someone or washing their car! The aim and purpose of our lives should be to glorify our God!
Matthew 5:16 says, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven!”
