Pure in Heart

I was reminded of my favorite beatitude today. Though I love all the beatitudes, this one is my absolute fav!

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. (Matt. 5:8)

I love the thought that I could see God! The other "rewards" from the beatitudes are:
the kingdom of heaven
being comforted
inherit the earth
being fulfilled
shown mercy
called the sons of God
As I look upon this occurs to me that I already have these things! God has been gracious giving me the faith to believe, thus providing me with all the "rewards" I can ever think of. So now I want to be pure in heart. How do I do that? I don't know...but He knows and I trust He will continue to work on me.
