Blessed are the pure in heart for they will see God.
Blessed are the genuine, blameless, sincere, untarnished, undefiled, unmixed, transparent in understanding, will, character, thoughts and passions, for they will perceive, know and experience God.
Looking for and expecting to see good character in people will enable you to see those God-like, positive qualities within them. You will see what you look for.
C.S. Lewis in 'The problem of pain' (quoted by Brian McLaren in 'The secret message of Jesus') says: “It is safe to tell the pure in heart that they shall see God, for only the pure in heart want to.”
