Sincere in the Heart

Read: 1 Samuel 16:7

Men judge the heart of others by their actions. But God judges the actions by the heart. If the heart is sincere, God will see the faith and bear with the failing. Sincerity makes our duties acceptable, like musk among linen that perfumes it. As Jehu said to Jehonadab in 2 Kin. 10:15, “Is your heart right …? And Jehonadab said, It is. If it is, give me your hand. So he gave him his hand; and he took him up into the chariot.
