The Evil In The Hearts Of Men

Greedy,
Bigotry,
Jealousy,
Gluttony.

Lying,
Cheating,
Stealing,
Destroying.

Spiteful,
Lustful,
Neglectful,
Unfaithful.

Laziness,
Drunkenness,
Lawlessness.
Cowardliness.

I’ve had enough,
Of those old vices,
To last me a lifetime!

They’ve inflicted much pain
And left many scars.

They’ve dimmed my vision,
And dulled my senses.

I’ve learned my lesson,
I’m ready to repent.

Oh Lord Jesus,
Please heal my heart,
And make it new.

“Other vices affect our judgment, anger affects our sanity: others come in mild attacks and grow unnoticed, but men’s minds plunge abruptly into anger. Its intensity is in no way regulated by its origin: for it rises to the greatest heights from the most trivial beginnings.”

Excerpt from Anger is temporary madness

The Lord God says: “In the day that I cleanse you from all your offenses, I will cause the cities to be inhabited, and the waste places to be rebuilt. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” Bible, Ezekiel 36:26,33
