Proverbs‬ ‭21‬:‭2-3, 21

People may be right in their own eyes, but the LORD examines their heart. The LORD is more pleased when we do what is right and just than when we offer him sacrifices.

Whoever pursues righteousness and unfailing love will find life, righteousness, and honor. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭21‬:‭2-3, 21‬ NLT)
