“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.” Matthew 5:8
When you hear pure in heart, I bet you have a few things that come to mind. Maybe it is someone you see that does amazing things for their neighbors, someone like Mother Teresa. Maybe you think of children with all of their innocence.
What would it be like to think of the phrase pure of heart and see your face come to mind? Being pure of heart is not for everyone else and something that you strive for. When Jesus was talking about this, he is encouraging you to let you know the type of followers He is looking for.
So how do we become pure of heart?
First off by not holding offenses, or better yet living a life where you are unoffended. I know, I know, it is hard today when so many things are thrown your way that you just don’t agree with. But let’s think about it, don’t you think Jesus was faced with things daily that went against the things he agreed with? People were always asking him questions trying to second guess his knowledge and belief system, yet with each answer he remained calm and spoke plainly.
There are many things that pollute our hearts today, whether it be on the TV, radio, social media, or just driving down the road and some of the billboards. The way we stay pure, is by being mindful of what we allow into our hearts when we encounter these things. Being pure of heart is about asking God to come in and flood your heart with His glory, building up your immunity to the toxic vibes we encounter each day.
