SMS # 29: Matthew 5:8

Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.

To be pure in heart is to have the same single passion found in the untarnished heart of God – his disgust for sin; his desire for righteousness and justice; his love for the people; his passion for his own glory and supremacy in everything.

What things (actions, attitudes, preoccupations) taint our hearts and hinder us from seeing and knowing God? What should we do about these ‘things’?
