David wanted to keep his heart pure and it wasn’t always easy to do. We are also faced with this: KEEPING OUR HEARTS PURE. What does it mean to have a pure heart? It’s just a heart full of good things. But life brings us all kinds of situations where bad things want to enter our hearts.
David became a great king, but Saul, who was jealous, tried to kill him several times. Each time, David chose to keep his heart pure and forgive him. Are there people around you who have hurt you and who you should forgive because the feelings you have towards them are not beautiful? Forgiveness is not always easy, but the Father helps us to forgive. On the cross, Jesus said this to his father, in Luke 23:34: “Father forgive them because they do not know what they are doing.” Jesus had a pure heart and David also had one. You too can have that same heart.
