GOD PAUSE: The book of Proverbs has often been called the book of unfiltered wisdom. I was just reading this morning in Proverbs 21:2 “You may think you're right all the time, but God thoroughly examines our motives.” I suppose that there's both a challenge and a comfort in that verse, don't you? The comfort is that God knows our hearts, our motives. But also the challenge to keep my heart right. My motives to be right or pure in God's eyes. People may not always understand them and neither may I at times. Dear Lord, help my heart beat with yours. May my motives be you yours. Then all is well. Amen.
