Thessa-lessons – Examine Your Motives

Read 1 Thessalonians 2:4-8 Our purpose is to please God, not people. He alone examines the motives of our hearts. 1 Thessalonians 2:4b (NLT) Not-yet-believers will naturally be suspicious of our motives when we present the gospel, for we are calling them to change.
