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.

  6. G says:

    Lord, I need help. I have thoughts and actions that are not pure and honoring to you. PLEASE help me to turn my life around to honor you. Thank you. Amen

      G. It is impossible for YOU to turn your life around. However nothing is too hard for God. Invite the Holy Spirit into your life to be your conscience and guide. Pray and talk to him anytime, anywhere when you have decisions to make. 1Jn 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
