YMC011: Motives Matter.
In this week’s episode hosts Gene and Jon Abercrombie discuss the heart behind our motives. As the most recent YMC blog post Motives Matter explains, our motives matter to God because they expose whether we are working for God or for ourselves. Eventually, selfish and sinful motives produce selfish and sinful behavior. Gene and Jon suggest how to practically assess whether or not your motives are pure, and provide several helpful scripture references.
