The proper motive for any and all of our actions should be to glorify God.
... whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.1 Corinthians 10:31b
His glory is the reason why God himself did what He did:
Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name's sake.Psalms 79:9
He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.John 7:18
What are your pursuits? What are your goals? What are your dreams?
Do they have the right motive? Is your motive to glorify God?
If not, check your heart.
