Seeing with a pure heart brings protection from assault and robbery

Adapted from an article published in the July 2005 issue of El Heraldo de la Ciencia Cristiana. 

I can recall many moments of inspiration in my life. Trusting in God’s omnipotent presence in times of need has brought many healings and moments of grace. 

One in particular keeps revealing itself in brighter and more profound beauty, bringing me a clearer understanding of God. It happened years ago, when I was relatively new to the study of Christian Science. 

I was reading the weekly Bible Lesson found in the Christian Science Quarterly when a statement caught my attention: “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8). I kept asking myself, “What does it mean to be pure in heart? What does it mean to see God?”
