The Beatitudes

They are simply stated, but are profound in meaning. They guide. They point. They teach. They show us the values that Christ cares about. .

The Beatitudes are found at Matthew 5: 3-12

Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they who mourn,
for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek,
for they shall possess the earth.

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for justice,
for they shall be satisfied.

Blessed are the merciful,
for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure of heart,
for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called sons of God.

Blessed are they who suffer persecution for justice sake,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

I've really needed the bible this week, as you probably can see in my blog.
I just wanted to share with my friends, the comfort that I have found .
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I appreciate all of you so much.
I love reading all of yours too.

Have a Blessed Easter Weekend.
I'm off work tomorrow..
