31 Days of Pure Joy. Day 23. Compelling

Do we do good things for others to feel good about ourselves. Do we do it to check it off our mental list. Are there things that we do in honor to get praise from those around us?

It is Christ and Christ alone who compels us to love. To honor. To respect. We do not do these things for ourselves. But for him and because of his great love that compels us to this attitude.
