The importance of a pure heart

Now the antecedent purpose of our profession is purity of heart, while its ultimate end is the Kingdom of Heaven.  It is, thus, impossible for the Kingdom of God to come to us without purity of heart.  Thus, let our minds be fixed on this purpose at all times; and let us be zealous always to direct our thoughts, words and deeds to it.  And if it should happen that our heart departs from the straight path, let us bring it back at once and rectify it --- using our purpose like a carpenter's plumb line.
