The character of Amaziah , who succeeded Joash on the throne of Judah , is summed up in the phrase.-"He did that which was right in the sight of the Lord , but not with a perfect heart." The outward actions were right ,but not directed to the right end. Where do we stand , for "man's chief end is to glorify God ,and enjoy Him forever.?
QUOTE: "He did that which was right in the sight of the Lord , but not with a perfect heart."
I wonder what that does to "acting as if...", you know where people are told to act as if they're confident and they will become more confident? Or act as if something will work out, expecting it to, and it more likely will? Of course, if he was doing right that way, his heart would have been right because he was trying to feel what he showed.
