Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, June 08, 2015:
When Jesus saw the crowds, He went up the mountain, and after he had sat down, His disciples came to Him. He began to teach them saying:
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land.
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you falsely because of me.
REJOICE AND BE GLAD, for your reward will be great in heaven. Thus they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”
-From the Gospel of Matthew 5: 1-12
*How can we be blessed?
*Do we deserve to be among the blessed?
*Are we ready to embrace His teachings so we can rejoice and be glad?
