Read Matthew 5:8
Jesus says, Blessed are the pure in heart. What comes time mind when you hear that? Pastor Jason talked about purity of heart being an undivided heart. What are the things that fight to divide our hearts?

Read 1 Corinthians 10:13
What does this passage tell us about our temptations? What does this passage tell us God promises us when we face temptations? How does having a pure heart help us to see the path out of temptation?
