Right in our own eyes?

“People may be right in their own eyes, but the LORD examines their heart.” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭21:2‬ ‭NLT‬‬

It is easy to justify ourselves according to our own standards, but it is God’s standards that are the true measure. We can also justify ourselves by looking at the lives of others and comparing our life to theirs. The reality is though that we all need God to search our hearts. We need Him to measure our motives and desires. Like King David we need Him to pin point any ways that are wrong in His eyes.


Heavenly Father, please search my heart and show me any ways that are not right in Your eyes. I pray like King David that You would create in me a clean heart O God. Help me to not to be right in my own eyes, but to measure myself against Your ways. Amen.
