Dear God, my motives are so disappointingly childish. As I face the tasks of the day, my actions and attitudes are driven by my desire for notice, leisure, and pleasure. I arrange things to suit, corrupting even my good actions into selfish ones.
Like any child, Lord, you gently teach me. You bring me brief glimpses of right living and right attitudes. The actions I undertake driven by you are so much more satisfying than my too frequent self-driven ones.
Lord, let me do your work today.
