Psalm 58

“A deaf viper stops its ears so as not to hear the voice of charmers.” (58:5-6)

Our inner voice is generally good at telling us what we ought to do. The problem is that there are other voices around us that utter conflicting messages, tempting us to do what benefits us rather than what is right, or take the least challenging way over the path of virtue. We ought to listen to our inner voice, but if we hear ourselves saying, “Don’t confuse me with the facts because I’ve already made up my mind,” we should be open to the possibility that it’s our inner voice that’s charming us and leading us astray.
