A person doesn’t necessarily have to believe in the Christian religion or the Jewish faith in order to draw motivation from these inspirational truths that speak to the human condition, though having faith does add an extra source of spiritual strength.

  3. So do not worry about tomorrow; it will have enough worries of its own. There is no need to add to the troubles each day brings. (Matthew 6:34)
  4. Plan carefully and you will have plenty; if you act too quickly, you will never have enough. (Proverbs 21:5)
  5. Be under obligation to no one—the only obligation you have is to love one another. Whoever does this has obeyed the Law. (Romans 13:8)

  9. Love is patient and kind; it is not jealous or conceited or proud; love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable; love does not keep a record of wrongs; love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth. Love never gives up; and its faith, hope, and patience never fail. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)
  10. A good person brings good out of the treasure of good things in his heart; a bad person brings bad out of his treasure of bad things. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. (Luke 6:45)
  11. You should each judge your own conduct. If it is good, then you can be proud of what you yourself have done, without having to compare it with what someone else has done. For each of you have to carry your own load. (Galatians 6:4-5)
  12. You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free (John 8:32)

On the Internet, there’s a comparatively large number of searches by people looking for motivational quotes. They may find sayings from famous people about all kinds of life topics, and they could also find Bible verses that are motivational. Using the vernacular language that’s commonly used by everyday people helps them to understand that the Bible has something relevant to say to our everyday lives. That’s what the paraphrased versions of the Bible do. A different way to make these good thoughts more accessible and findable by people would be to use the term motivational quotes for these Bible verses.
