Pure motives come from having the right focus. When our focus is on the Lord and His holiness, everything else tends to fade into the background. But it doesn’t just happen. We have to regularly and intentionally set aside all that distracts us for the purpose of putting our whole focus on Him.

Maybe today you need to do something to prepare your heart to spend time with God. Turn off the phone. Walk away from the chores. Find a comfortable space. Turn on some worship music. Whatever it is, today, let’s spend time simply asking God to help train our focus as we practically remove distraction to allow us to focus our hearts and minds solely on God. The more we practice intentionality in this area, the stronger our focus on Him grows.
