Motivation to Serve God

1 Samuel 12:24 Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you.

Here we are given a great reason to serve God. This passage is written to Israel right after they received Saul as their king. Samuel is reminding them that even with a king they are to serve the God of heaven and to fear Him above all. The reason for Israel to serve and fear is because God has done so many great things for them. The Israelites are at this point of receiving a king because of all the miracles that God has done in their lives.

This is so true for us today as well. We should take time daily to consider how many great things God has done for us. The goodness of God towards us is a great motivator to live right and to serve God as we ought to. Let us consider today how good God has been to us and allow that to motivate us to serve God!
