Our Moral Compass

Summary

On the other hand, we must remember that it is easy to think we are on the right path when, in reality, we are not even headed on a magnetic north heading, let alone a true north heading. We easily fool ourselves, putting false idols, false images and attractive destinations ahead of the righteous path on which we should be traveling. The prophet Jeremiah addresses this: “The heart is devious above all else; it is perverse — who can understand it?” (17:9). The answer comes immediately: “I the Lord test the mind and search the heart, to give to all according to their ways, according to the fruit of their doings” (17:10).
