David’s Heart

We recently read Psalm 139 in church and the last few verses of the psalm struck me in a way that they hadn’t before.  David asks our Creator to

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;
       test me and know my anxious thoughts.

24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
       and lead me in the way everlasting.

David wants God to search him and know his heart.  His desire is to be completely and utterly transparent before God.  He invites God to find the offensive ways and to lead him the way everlasting.  It caused me to question my own heart.  Is my desire one of complete and utter transparency?  Do I want to be lead in the way everlasting?
