Jeremiah 17: 7- 10
The first section of this passage always reminds me of Psalm 1.
The second portion is sobering. The human heart IS deceitful, it IS wicked. We are so quick to justify our sin, to let our emotions rules our decision making, and to be led astray by our own sinful wants and desires. God sees the heart - with all it's failings. And though He does give us what we deserve, He also gives us what we don't deserve - mercy. Thanks be to God for this indescribable gift!
