Jesus response to the religious leaders was how that they honored him with their lips but that their hearts were far from him and that their worship was in vain. Talk is cheap if our heart is somewhere else. If we don’t guard our hearts then our hearts become hardened and progression is being full of pride and pride leads to spiritual blindness and spiritual blindness leads to deception. The only thing that can penetrate a hard heart is truth. They further discuss the process the prodigal son went through from a hard heart to a soft and broken heart. When his heart was right he got right. They encourage us to give the Lord all of our heart and not to resist the truth which hardens the heart.
