Remembering Elisabeth Elliot: Day 18

Anastasis Faith
“If your goal is purity of heart, be prepared to be thought very odd.”
-Elisabeth Elliot

Here at Morning Glory, this is our goal! To be pure in heart! To love Jesus with our whole hearts! But that’s not a common goal of teen girls—or humans in general.

Sisters, we’re on a crash collision course with the world. We will be hated, mocked, and possibly even physically harmed.

Conforming to the world’s standards, however, is not our goal. Our goal is glorify God by becoming more like Him.

As Matthew 5: 8 says, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” That is far more desirable than being thought “cool” or even “normal” by the world. I would rather be thought odd in this world—which is not my home—if I get to see God.

Have you been persecuted—however mildly—for your faith? What other thoughts or observations do you have of this quote? Share in the comments!
