We justify our actions by appearances;God examines our motives. - Proverbs 21:2
People may be pure in their own eyes, but the Lord examines their motives. - Proverbs 16:2
The Lord examines the motives of the heart. This can be both a blessings and a challenge. We all make mistakes, so errors made with a pure motive will be seen as such. However, good actions made with an impure motive will not be rewarded.
Heavenly Father, forgive me for the dishonesty behind impure motives. Thank You for leading me into all truth.
