Serving with ulterior motives…

Serving with ulterior motives…

by F. B. Meyer

How many of us, who are engaged in the Lord’s holy service,Ā are secretly cherishing some proud aspiration of excelling otherĀ men, of making a name for ourselves, of securing money orĀ fame!

We will use the pulpit as a pedestal for the adulation of theĀ world, and the cross for a post on which to hang garlands toĀ our own glory.

How often do we preach sermons, or make addresses,Ā and attend meetings, with no other thought than to secureĀ the recognition and praise of those to whom we ‘minister’.

All of this must be laid aside. We must have no selfish,Ā prideful ulterior motives to serve Christ.

Honesty

Honesty has a beautiful and refreshing simplicity about it. No ulterior motives. No hidden meanings. An absence of hypocrisy, duplicity, political games, and verbal superficiality. As honesty and real integrity characterize our lives, there will be no need to manipulate others.
