Sowing good, sowing love is first not ever supposed to be done for the reward. So much is done and said for the possibility of what would come from the action. This simply renders the action selfish, and not of true selfless intent.
There is so much we will never know. Mainly the hearts of others through their intents. This is confusing to the world because the world says it is blessed to receive. Where as the word of God says its blessed to give.( With the right heart) Without expectation.
Expectation of doing good shows that a person is seeking (self fulfillment)
Not only is this a practice of the world but is openly spoken of as such. I’ve heard people say I like doing good things because it makes me feel good inside. To the naked eye this makes sense. Yet it is still self seeking and that takes president over the deed in the eyes of God. For if the feeling of feeling good were to not be present then the deed would not be present or would be altered in some form or fashion,
This truth would surely offend some. As to look beyond the surface usually always exposes intent. We cannot fool or deceive God with deeds. He judges the heart. Those deeds done from the right heart are what will be rewarded. Love truly and then honesty to others without the thought or way of the heart that is not pure will flee.
Father guide me to Love without expectation! From anyone! Purify my heart Lord so that my ways are not vain or with corrupt intent. Grace my heart with your ways, your pureness Father. As I follow Yeshua your son Father , guide me as his brother and your son to do the ways he has shown us all. With all faith and truth. Forgive my ways that are not of you . Search me and show me how to let you purify all areas in your son name Yeshua the Christ I say I love you and thank you..
Peace be with you all- Selah
