CCVII. The True Motive.

EPH. vi. 1. “For this is right.”

I. ALL human action is founded on motive.
1. Good.
2. Bad.
3. Mixed.
II. Only one motive can sustain a man through all the
discipline of right: “This is right.”
III. Other motives are unworthy of adoption.
1. This is pleasant.
2. This is profitable.
3. This is popular.
Let all fall before the Divine word—”This is right.”
Apply the text to young men in temptation, business
men in speculation, public men in crises, etc.
