The purity that conquers hate

“Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8). This powerful beatitude that Christ Jesus gave to his followers in the Sermon on the Mount is full of promise. It tells us that with purity comes the ability to know—to see—God and His kingdom.

To Christians—followers of Jesus’ teachings—welcoming purity into their lives is a constant goal. To be pure is to allow goodness, gentleness, peace, and unselfed love to govern your thinking and actions. It means to strive to be free from impure thinking in every form, whether it’s hatred, sensuality, deceit, etc.
