Don't think I'm insane but I'm going to answer my own question. We do these things because of our love for people. Where does that love come from? It's simple. Because our the overflow of God's love for us, we have compassion and love others.
It's so easy to forget that. I constantly have to check my motives and some times I let things slip through the cracks...
I hope that my motivation will always be that God loved me so much that I can't help but want to love other people. Maybe God would be able to use all of us more if we laid aside our selfish ambitions. Maybe we would see that we are made for more.
