The Wickedness of my Heart

Alma 10:6

Nevertheless, I did harden my heart, for I was called many times and I would not hear; therefore I knew concerning these things, yet I would not know; therefore I went on rebelling against God, in the wickedness of my heart...

I thought it was interesting that he said "in the wickedness of my heart." I don't think he had problems with sin outwardly. He was probably a good man who had a good family and a good life, but he was resistant to the spirit and maybe struggled with inward thoughts and attitudes. I don't know... What do you think?

This scripture also makes me think inwardly. What is the condition of my heart? If it is hard, what can I do so soften it?
