“Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.” (Matthew 5:8 KJV)
God is not saying that only those who are perfect will see Him. Instead, what Jesus is telling us is that by striving to have a clean, pure heart we will spend our days in paradise with Him. You can’t have a pure heart by holding on to grudges, harboring hate or anger, being envious of or plotting against people. You won’t see God is you are cradling on to sins, refusing to turn away from them. Scripture tells us that ALL unrighteousness is sin therefore regardless of however minuscule you think it is, it can be the very thing to keep you from making heaven. Take time to let God cleanse your heart and help you to draw closer to Him today.
