Proverbs 21:20 says, You may think that everything you do is right, but remember that the Lord judges your motives. People focus on actions and doing the right thing, but God focuses on motives. It's possible to do the right thing with the wrong motive. For example, you may give an offering at church, but be resentful because you would rather spend the money on a new top. It's not what you you give that's important, but your attitude when you give. Here are some more verses about your motives:
You may think everything you do is right, but the Lord judges your motives.
1 Corinthians 4:5
He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart.
