Today's Verse : Proverbs 11:20

The LORD detests men of perverse heart but he delights in those whose ways are blameless. — Proverbs 11:20

Thought

Whew, I surely wouldn't want to be on God's "I detest" list! Such people are an abomination to him. But what is a perverse heart? It is a heart that allows what is evil, impure, warped, greedy, dishonest, and violent to hold sway over a person's attitudes, views, and opinions. Ultimately, Jesus reminds us, such a heart shows up in a person's outward actions. How is our heart changed? By coming to God in repentance, confessing our alliance with what is evil and ungodly, and asking God to cleanse us and make us new by his Holy Spirit.

Prayer

Create in me a new heart O God and renew your Holy Spirit's presence in me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
