Why do you reason the way you do? 

Jesus forgave a man of his sins, and the scribes reasoned among themselves in their hearts that Jesus was blaspheming, believing that only God can forgive sins. 
Then Mark wrote,

“But immediately, when Jesus perceived in His spirit that they reasoned thus within themselves, He said to them, ‘Why do you reason about these things in your hearts?’” (Mark 2:8). 

Jesus knew what they reasoned even inside their hearts, because He created the heart and He can peer into it and know what it is doing! 

Then He wanted to know why they were thinking as they were, showing that He knew their thoughts, revealing that He was God who can forgive sins. 

Also, let us examine the way we reason, for it will reveal whether we think biblically, that is, whether we think the way God does.
