Do Good Works for the Praise of God
2 Corinthians 9:8; Ephesians 2:8–10; 1 John 4:12–16
Let Him be praised in you who works by you. Therefore do not work the good you do for your own praise, but to the praise of Him from whom you have the power to do good. From yourself you have the ill doing; from God you have the well doing.
