Luke 14...Motives

"And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you; for you shall be repaid at the resurrection of the just.” Luke 14:4

Why do we do the things we do?  Motive is very important to the Lord because it is our heart that He is most concerned with.  Therefore, He says to do for those who cannot ever do anything for you.  In this way, there is no personal gain for the acts of love and kindness we do for others and we place ourselves in the place of trusting God for His reward instead of what we can get when we do something for others.
