    I was reading in job 42;5-6 where Job said "I know ... that no thought can be withholden from thee. And, I repent in dust and ashes. this is another reminder that God cares what we think about (phil. 4:8). and Job knew it. Job1:5 and although he did not sin with his lips (Job 2:10) he held a grudge in his heart,until he repented . we must therefore keep our hearts with all diligence prov:4
