Revealed Motives

Scripture 

“The purpose in a man’s heart is like deep water, but a man of understanding will draw it out.”  ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭20:5‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Observation

The motives of a man are like deep water but understanding will reveal them. 

Application

How many of us truly know the motives of our heart? Are they motives guided by a desire to glorify God or self?  Peter’s motives were challenged after the resurrection. 

He (Jesus) said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” and he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep. John 21:17

Jesus will draw out from the depths of our hearts our true motives and agendas.  

Prayer

“Lord search me and know me and see if there be any wicked way in me.” Psalm 139:23, 24. Lord, search the deep waters of my life and draw the truth to the surface.
