Mormon Monday: Pure Hearts Reflected

In church on Sunday, we were talking about Matthew 5 and how Christ's law transcended the law of Moses. One scripture in particular made me think.

We were reading Matthew 5:8 which says:
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
The teacher in class provided the question, "What does it mean to be pure in heart?"

People in class gave some interesting answers. They said things such as child-like, innocent, and without fault.

These were all really good answers, and they started me thinking. I began to think about things that were without fault. A song came to my mind. It was a song I had heard in the MTC when I had played the piano while a girl sang it.

I can't find it, or remember what it is called, but basically the song was about how we want our souls to be a reflection of Christ, so that when people look at us, they will see Him. It was a beautiful song, and I wish I could remember what it was called.

Here is a song similar to it. I also really like this song.

I was thinking that I have met people in my life who seem to glow with an inner light. When you look at them, you just know that they would be great people to be friends with. It really seems like you look at them, and the Savior is reflected in their faces.

I want to be so clean and pure that when others look at me, they can see the Savior in reflected in my features. When my soul is pure and free of guile, then I feel that I will be on my way to being more like my Savior.

My cousin knew which song I was thinking of. It's called, "A Window to His Love."

Here is a video where someone sings it. It is written by Julie de Azevedo Hanks.


  1. We also had this lesson on Sunday. I actually thought of you when we were talking about people who are pure in heart. I think you do reflect the savior and always see the best in people.

    1. Aw, thank you, Elizabeth! You don't know what it means to me that you just said that. I love you a lot, and you're one of my heroes!
