Aside from the benefits of the other attributes that Jesus noted in the beatitudes, purity of heart brings with it the power of seeing more than others see in all through which God reveals Himself--the beauty of nature, one's own inward light, the moral order of the world, God's written word, and the life and teachings of Christ. And all these precede the culmination of that vision that will last forever in eternity.
