“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.”(Matthew 5:8)
All of us have selfish thoughts even if we hide our selfish behaviors. How can anyone be pure in heart?
Which is a heart that overcomes selfishness and is riveted on the greatness and the purposes of God and it’s just as difficult now. When our eyes wander to look at beautiful and tempting things, our hearts quickly follow. We make solemn vows to change, but we fail again and again.
Purity of heart isn’t perfection. Instead, it’s the passionate desire to know and follow Jesus Christ. In this life, we’ll experience all kinds of temptations, distractions, and detours, but God is looking for us who will keep pursuing Him, even if we stumble from time to time.
Jesus promises that we will be richly rewarded for pursuing God with all our hearts. Well see God as He speaks to us through the Scriptures, as He works in us to change our hearts, and as He works through us to have an impact on others. As our hearts become purer, we will care less and less about how much money, fame, or the power we possess and will care more and more about pleasing the One who loves us so much.
