#BLESSED: Beatitude 2
June 14, 2020
Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted. Ten words. If you were to ask me in ten words or less what it meant to be blessed these are not the ten words you’d hear come out of my mouth. Let’s be honest, they are probably not the ten words that you would choose either. When Jesus sat down to teach his new disciples and the crowds of intrigued followers these are the words he chose. So, what in the world did he mean? What was he trying to say? What would those original listeners have made of his words? Most importantly, how are we to comprehend his message so we can live as faithful citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven?
