Crime Came Close

Crime came close last night.
I don't know who.
I don't know what,
But crime came close.

Lots of cops,
Some crime-scene tape,
An ambulance--
Yes, crime came close.

Crime's always close
In sinful hearts,
And yet I'm shocked
When crime comes close.  

For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness.
(Mark 7:21-22 ESV)

How often we are told to just follow our heart, even though "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" according to Jeremiah 17:9.
