The Pure in Heart

“If God should stretch out the golden scepter and say to him, ‘Ask, and it shall be given you—up to half the kingdom,’ he would say, ‘Lord, give me a pure heart! Let my heart have this inscription, Holiness to the Lord. Let my heart be Your temple for You to dwell in. Lord, what would I do in heaven with this unholy heart? What converse could I have with You?’ A gracious soul is so in love with purity that he prizes a pure heart above all blessings.”

– Thomas Watson (1620-1686)
