In Psalm 26:2, David cries, “Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; Try my mind and my heart.” In Psalm 139:23-24 he pleads, “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” (KJV) The following document, "Questions of the Heart" leads us to consider our lives in comparison with Scripture. As we look at Scripture, let us also keep looking to Jesus who alone can make our lives acceptable to the Father (Eph. 2:8-9).
