Godly Sincerity and Purity #devo
“we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially toward you, with godly sincerity and purity, not by human wisdom but by God’s grace.” 2 Corinthians 1:12
Godly sincerity and purity can also mean simplicity, singleness of mind, purity of motives, graciousness. Insincerity, duplicity, selfish motives, entitlement prevents us from seeing others as Christ would. What insincerities reside in my heart? Do I use people or love people? Am I as gracious toward others weaknesses and faults as I am toward my own? Am I singleminded in my desire for people? Lord, test our motives. Make us pure, sincere, and gracious.
