Sermon on the Mount

The Beatitudes

 

Following the Beatitudes means making the choice to put God before everything else.

 

What do the Beatitudes mean for us today?  Here are Jesus' teachings on true happiness as they might be understood by people your age.

 

Blessed are the poor
Blessed are they who mourn
Blessed are the meek
Blessed are they who hunger
Blessed are the merciful
Blessed are the clean of heart
Blessed are the peacemakers
Blessed are they who are persecuted

 

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

Depend on God. Don't let material things get in the way of loving God and others.

 

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

Share other people's sorrows and joys.  Don't sent yourself apart from others.

 

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land.

Learn to be gentle with people and things.  Don't try to get your way by violence or bullying.

 

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.

Work hard to make sure that all people are treated justly.  Do what you can to change unjust conditions.

 

Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.

Forgive others and ask their forgiveness.  Let compassion, not anger, rule your life.

 

Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God.

Turn your attention only toward what is good and right.  Be faithful to God and God's ways.

 

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

Work to bring people together.  Don't contribute to quarrels and fights.  Look for ways to solve problems peacefully.

 

Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

In difficult times, keep trusting in God and standing up for what is right.
