Oh Lord!
Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake. Psalms 6:4

Grant me the wisdom to know the difference between good thoughts and evil thoughts.
Only the LORD give thee wisdom and understanding, and give thee charge concerning Israel, that thou mayest keep the law of the LORD thy God. 1 Chronicles 22:12

Teach me, oh Lord, to examine my own heart and motives with at least the same degree of scrutiny as I examine the actions of others.
Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart. Psalms 26:2
But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 1 Corinthians 11:28

A man who does not examine, constantly, his own life is leaving the door wide open for the evil one to take over and ruin his life.
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? 2 Corinthians 13:5

A life lived without diligent self examination is not worth living.
The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want. Proverbs 21:5
Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. 2 Peter 3:14

Good seeds, good thoughts, never bear evil fruits.
Matthew 7:17  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18  A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

Evil seeds, evil thoughts, always bear evil fruits.
For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: Matthew 15:19

Good seeds bear the good fruit of love, joy, peace, patience and faith.
Galatians 5:22  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23  Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Bad seeds bear the evil fruits of hatred, anger, strife and doubt.
Galatians 5:19  Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20  Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21  Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Live the good life and live.
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise. Proverbs 11:30
