Proverbs 21:2…”Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the heart.” Our unbelief results in our motives being selfish in all we do. Our pride, born out of unbelief, justifies all we do. When we don’t pursue the Lord through lively and habitual faith, we sin and are quick to justify our ways. In fact, prideful unbelief is the most egregious sin, and has also been the most frequent of mankind since Adam, driving all other forms of disobedience. However, the Lord knows our motives. He evaluates our desires, and sees clearly our sinful motives even in religious activities. We need to take spiritual inventory daily, and test ourselves to be sure we’re desiring His glory in all we do. This will cause us to run to the cross in repentance increasingly as we see our desperate need for Jesus.
