a matter of the heart

This people draws near with words only and honors me with their lips alone; though their hearts are far from me (Isaiah 29:13).
So rend your hearts and not your garments; Return to the LORD your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and He relents from doing harm (Joel 2:13).
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and a contrite heart -- these, O God, You will not despise (Psalm 51:17).
Only He who endured the cross can heal the wounds of our hearts.
