(Read Proverbs 21:3)
Many deceive themselves with a conceit that outward devotions will excuse unrighteousness.
1 In the Lord's hand the king's heart is a stream of water that he channels toward all who please him.
2 A person may think their own ways are right, but the Lord weighs the heart.
3 To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.
4 Haughty eyes and a proud heart- the unplowed field of the wicked-produce sin.
5 The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty.
