Proverb for the Day 21:2 — Keeping it One Hundred!

All a man’s ways seem right to him, but the LORD weighs the heart.

What a wonderful insight about us – I think everything I do is right! Really, if I thought I wasn’t right, I would change. So I either believe I am doing the right thing, or I have the ability to just delude myself and justify my actions. But God looks right past my actions (“ways”) and see my “heart” (my motives).

While others may be impressed with my ways, and/or I may be very adept at justifying my actions, God actually knows what I really think and why I really do what I do. He will help me when I need help and call me on my stuff when I need that, too!

If I can just remember that this is how things really are – and then live every day that way – life would be pretty good, and I will get much better at thinking and doing right things.
