00643 - Beatitudes - Blessed Are The Pure In Heart

The Beatitudes, as presented by Jesus, offer a counter-cultural view of the world. In Matthew 5:8 (MSG), we are told, "You're blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world." In every aspect of life. It's a call to cleanse our intentions and desires, aligning them with God's will.

This process, though challenging, leads to a life of integrity and authenticity, reflecting the heart of God. Being blessed is an experience as much as it is an ambition. God is for you.

The pure in heart are promised the ultimate blessing: they shall see God. This vision transcends physical sight, encompassing an understanding and connection with the Divine that infuses every moment with grace and meaning. Let this pursuit shape our daily lives, guiding our thoughts, actions, and relationships towards the true blessedness of seeing God.


Being blessed is an experience as much as it is an ambition.


Father, thank You for allowing me to be pure in heart; deepen that within me. Amen.

Action Point

What is the sin you experience? Move away from it. Focus on being holy.
