Pure in Heart

Re:Verse passage – Matthew 5:33-48 (day six)

May the words of my mouth
    and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing to you,
    O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14

God cares about your inner life; your thought life and love life are of grave concern to him. He cares about your business dealings, how your heart handles your enemies, and your thought life when bad things happen.  He cares about the integrity of your inner life.

That’s why the whole law can be reduced to one command: love.  That’s what Jesus is getting after in his greatest sermon.
