A Pure Heart

By   •   March 22   •   Topics: ,

The Pharisees were not happy men. They had furrowed brows, nervous tension, frustration. They were full of resentments, bitterness, prejudices, and hatreds. Why? Simply because they had lost sight of God’s conception of the pure in heart. They thought that as long as they kept the letter of the law that was enough. But this was not God’s plan. This did not produce purity of heart. This did not bring about happiness of soul. Jesus taught that God looks deeper than the outside actions of an individual. He searches and ponders the heart. God judges not so much the outside as He does the inside. He looks to the motives, thoughts, and intents of your heart.

Go deeper: Read about what it means to live a life of purity and holiness.

Prayer for the day

Father, give me purity of heart that in true humility I may serve and praise You.

    I have always been good, in my physical character, that everybody say that i’m a true christian. But in me i see myself as a bad being, because of my sins behind the scene. How can i overcome this?
