Purity of Heart!
2 Chron 25: 2 And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, but not with a perfect heart….
How well I have learned the difficulty that my motives cause. Years trying to get off the performance treadmill, doing good works trying to please my heavenly Father, who was already pleased with me. This verse stands out to me in this: I can be doing good works, but still be compromised in my obedience to Him. Doing works, without a perfect heart.
So, we continually pray, and obey:
Ps 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting, in Your Mighty name I pray Lord Jesus! Amen’
