Welcome to Verse of the Day!

Today's Bible Verse:

Psalm 51:6
Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart. (ESV)

Today's Inspiring Thought: Truth in the Secret Heart

It doesn't matter how truthful and wise we appear to be on the outside. The Lord delights in our inward truthfulness. He knows our secret heart. He cannot be fooled.

David, who wrote this Psalm, devised a scheme to kill Bethsheba's husband Uriah. Although it appeared to everyone else that Uriah had died in battle, the Lord knew that David had arranged for the man to be killed to cover his sin of adultery. God cannot be deceived, and David paid a high price to learn the wisdom of inward truthfulness.
