And he did what was right in the sight of the Lord , but not with a loyal heart. 2 Chr 25:2
Observe that what the bible recorded here in 2 Chr 25:2 – Amaziah “…did was right in the eyes of God, but not with a loyal heart.“
What does this mean? Very simply – we can behave in a Godly manner not because we love God and want to please Him, but because we do so for other motives and reasons.
This is a timely reminder for us to examine ourselves. Why do we perform Godly duties? If the motives for our Godly actions are not genuinely out of love for God, they will not be sustainable. Soon, our true motives will be exposed as we saw them in the life of Amaziah in 2 Chr 25.
