BIBLE SAY ABOUT MOTIVATION?

People are motivated, or moved to action, by many different things—to provide for their family, to make someone close to them proud, or to accomplish a difficult goal. If our pursuit seems to us noble enough, our motivation seems justified. However, at the root of what motivates us is often self-centeredness. Unlike our neighbors or our friends who often only see our outward actions, God is the one who examines our hearts, our motivation (1 Samuel 16:7; Proverbs 16:2; Jeremiah 12:3; 17:10). The Bible tells us that our motivation should not be selfish gain or seeking approval based on our own merits; rather, our motivation should come from God and a desire to obey and honor Him.

Motivation is defined as “that which moves one toward an action; that which changes, provokes, or impels our very being.” The Bible has a great deal to say about motivation. The motivation of Christians is different from that of unbelievers. For one thing, our sense of motivation or inspiration comes from God, not from the things of the world.

The Bible is an amazing source of motivation, encouragement, and inspiration. We can use Bible quotes to keep us going when we feel like giving up – whether you need motivation to wake up in the morning, face a hard task or challenge, start a new job, or simply struggling with being overwhelmed. Scripture can motivate us to live righteously and courageously knowing the true love and power of God.
