In Mark 7:15, Jesus reminds his hearers that it is not what comes from the outside and goes into a man that defiles him, but the things which proceed out of him that cause him to be defiled. Our behavior, attitudes, and actions lack purity because they come from our sinful hearts, and our greatest need is not for more man-made rules that focus on external things, but for a clean, pure heart that is given over fully to God.
