pure in heart

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.  Matthew 5:8

Familiar verse, maybe...too familiar.

Look at the Amplified version. 
 "Blessed (happy, enviably fortunate, and spiritually prosperous—possessing the happiness produced by the experience of God’s favor and especially conditioned by the revelation of His grace, regardless of their outward conditions) are the pure in heart, for they shall see God!"

Had to put those words in bold print, because, I feel strongly that the true and deep calling, the deep meaning of this verse is, the pure in heart are blessed because they see God in everything!  No matter the situation or circumstance, they see the cup from the Father's hand, and they are open to the redeeming power of God to bring about His good work, every where, every time.
