Finding God's Goodness

Week Thirty-One. Modesty. Purity of Heart. 

Month Seven – Valuing My Body. Temperance with faith produces modesty.

What does conversion look like for you in your daily life?  Conversion is the simple action of turning to God in thought and action as the only enduring good. It is the simple act of humility where I attach myself to God and live according to His plan rather than mine. Realizing that my faith fuels the action of my body bringing divine presence in the world. 

After hearing the word of Jonah, the Ninevites “proclaimed a fast, and everyone, great and small, put on sackcloth.” What is the purpose of these ascetic practices? To wean people away from an attachment to worldly pleasures. 

Go beyond the mind that you have. Repent. Live as though nothing in this world finally matters. And you will be living in the kingdom of God!

Thank you Lord for teaching me purity of heart.
