Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever.
Light shines on the righteous and joy on the upright in heart. … Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
Listen, my son, and be wise, and set your heart on the right path. … A happy heart makes the face cheerful … The discerning heart seeks knowledge, the cheerful heart has a continual feast.
The seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop. … Pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. … As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart.
