Motivating Others Starts with Appreciation

 Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Romans 12:10

Everyone has a basic need to feel loved and appreciated!  If you want the cooperation of someone else a good place to start is with yourself.

Eternal Results

Consider your choices and the motivation behind them.

For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself? Luke 9:25

I was thinking about this devotion and realized that often I forget that we are eternal beings. We get land locked and time locked into our journey here on Earth forgetting that every action or lack of action on our part has an eternal impact.

We can save the world or accumulate lots of stuff but none of it is coming with us and if we neglect our time and relationship with God it will change the outcome of our life after we leave this body. (thedailyverse.com)
