a pure heart

David said:  Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up pink tulipshis soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.__Psalm 24:3-4lamb

God’s man shares what he has learned in his intimacy with Holy God in his Psalm 24.  David has killed his ten thousands (1 Samuel 18:7)   but he knows something about clean hands.  Serving God was his bread and seeking God was his water. David fought for God’s chosen people.   Today, I think  ”clean hands” connotes an absence of violence but  it is more than that.  Clean hands for the believer can mean being light in a dark place. Fearing, esteeming God more than man.  Not sitting by and allowing evil to flourish.

My best definition of pure is:   unmixed  or  singular in composition.  (peanut butter NO  jelly  kool-aid NO sugar .     .   .     getting a little loopy over here. lol)

 For the believer, a pure heart is a heart for God  .  period                                                                                                                                                                                                       Jesus said:red crystal heart

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.__Matthew 5:8

 And Yes, God is in everything!
