There is a gap that exists in all of us between who we want to be and who we really are. We are called to both recognize that the gap exists, but also to remember that God's kindness doesn't stop because of that reality. Bill Clark concludes our study of Proverbs by encouraging us to look inward and find our weak points and to rely on God's strength to shore them up.

All a man’s ways seem innocent to him, but motives are weighed by the Lord.
Jeremiah 17:9 NIV
The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?
Proverbs 16:18 NIV
Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
James 1:22 NIV
Do not merely listen to the Word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
Not only do we know God through Christ alone, but we know ourselves by Christ alone.
// Blaise Pascal
