WE ARE MORE CONCERNED ABOUT PEOPLE’S OPINIONS THAN GODS
The fear of human opinion disables; trusting in GOD protects you from that. Proverbs 29:25
We justify our actions by appearances; God examines our motives. Proverbs 21:2
the condition of our heart matters to god
The Lord said to Samuel, “I don’t make decisions the way you do! Men judge by outward appearance, but I look at a man’s thoughts and intentions.” 1 Samuel 16:7
SELFISH MOTIVES DAMAGE OUR RELATIONSHIPS
We are not to be like Cain, who belonged to Satan and killed his brother. Why did he kill him? Because Cain had been doing wrong and he knew very well that his brother’s life was better than his.
1 John 3:12
A PROMISE FROM GOD
If you plan to do evil, you will be lost; if you plan to do good, you will receive unfailing love and faithfulness.
We should be driven by a desire to seek and to follow God’s purpose and plans for our lives. When my life was driven by my desire to feed my selfish habits nothing wen right. Luke 12:34 TLB says “Wherever your treasure is, there your heart and thoughts will also be.” If we truly desire recovery not just sobriety then our motivation for what we do, when we do it, and how we do it must come from the application of The Twelve Steps in accordance with God’s guidance through His Word.
