Ephesians 5:3-8 NIV

But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people.  4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.  5 For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a person is an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.  6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient.  7 Therefore do not be partners with them.  8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.

A. Focus on the Truth

Psalm 139:23-24
Search me, O God and know my heart. Try me and know my thoughts. See if there be any wicked way in me. Lead me in the way everlasting.

B. Focus on Eternal Impact

When we put our heart upon an eternal perspective, it will always change our motivation from selfish to selfless.
