A pure heart

Mark 1:21-28

In the first reading, Eli hinted that Hannah may be drunk for offering her child if the Lord would grant her request but she defended that she wasn't.  In full control of her intentions, she said what she meant.  And the Lord granted her the request.

In the gospel, Jesus taught with authority and he expelled demons with great authority.  What could be the secret behind Jesus' authority?  The secret is the same as Hannah's - a pure heart.

We might be asking from the Lord, but a pure intention moves us to a deeper level - we would like first and foremost to consecrate our lives to Him and to offer ourselves to serve Him.

These are the marks of a pure heart.  They manifest in words and actions that reveal the power and authority of God himself.

Let us pray that we may possess a pure heart in our service to God.
