"Blessed are the pure in heart for they will see God." Matthew 5:8

For years I viewed this verse as being concerned with a future fulfillment as opposed to a present reality. I was concerned with making sure my heart was pure and free from sin so that someday—when I finally got to heaven—I would see God. But I now believe Jesus' focus was on a much more immediate fulfillment. A more accurate rendering of this verse might be something like this: "Blessed are the pure in heart, the undivided and unencumbered in their devotion, for they will perceive God in every situation, in the present moment." I believe Jesus is calling us to be people whose hearts are not blinded to God's manifest presence by earthly distractions and encumbrances. God is ALWAYS actively moving and working in our lives and situations. Sadly, we often miss what the Father is doing and fail to "perceive" His ways. May we be people who willingly remove even the good distractions dividing our hearts so that we may experience the blessing of seeing God in the present moment.

"Dear Lord Jesus, purify my heart and my devotion. Open the eyes of my heart Lord, that I might see you and all that you are doing in my life and other people's lives in this present moment. In Jesus Name, Amen."
