Day Eight – Persecuted

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven -Matthew 5:10 Well here we are at the end of this eight day series. I'm not sure how many of you have followed along, or worked through the beatitudes the past eight days too. I know that studying and

Day Seven – Peacemakers

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God. - Matthew 5:9 In this high charged political season it is hard to imagine being a "peacemaker".

Day Three – Blessed are the Meek

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth -Matthew 5:5 Like I said in earlier posts, this is just my crazy finite minds interpretation of the beatitudes as I reflect on them. That being said, as I read commentaries and resources on Matthew 5:5, one quote kept coming to mind. It comes from
