Incline my heart

    Incline my heart to your testimonies,
        and not to selfish gain!
Psalm 119:36 ESV

Sam Storms Meditation on Psalm 119, Part 4

(4) There is great significance in the fact that the psalmist also prays that God would do more than teach him what the Law means; he prays that God would “incline” his heart to observe them (see vv. 10, 35, 36, 37, 88, 117, cf. 133). In other words, God is present to incite our souls to obey the insight of our minds! He is committed not simply to illumine our understanding but also to incline our wills.

Knowledge that does not lead to action serves only to breed arrogance and pride.
