Passage: 2 Corinthians 12:11-21
Verse: 2 Corinthians 12:19b (NIV 2011)
We have been speaking in the sight of God as those in Christ; and everything we do, dear friends, is for your strengthening.
God knows all, sees all, and is present in all places and circumstances. He looks at the heart, what our intentions are, and the motivation behind what we think, do, and say. He loves us, but will hold us accountable, and in some cases discipline us, for those things that grow out of our heart, intentions, and motivations. May we always be found acceptable in the eyes of the Lord. May our thoughts, words, actions, and deed always be found strengthening others.
