What are your motives?

DAILY VERSE

And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure.

James 4:3

DEVOTION

Motivation is everything when it comes to our prayers. God is looking for honesty and he wants you to speak from your heart. Is what you’re asking for a want or a need, how will God be glorified? God isn’t interested in our worldly motivations, he sees fame and fortune as frivolous. So pray boldly for what you know will glorify him.
