A Divided Heart

“Ruth, don't you know He says: 'For I the Lord thy God am a Jealous God?' 
How often I have thought of that! He will not abide with a divided heart; 
He must be first; 
and, for myself, I did not for years keep Him first. 
God was not in all my thoughts." 
(Ruth Erskine’s Crosses, page 376)

One step to purity is to not have a “divided heart” – a heart focused on our dreams, our desires, and our passions cannot also be focused on God.
