As part of BEDA (Blog Every Day in April) I have decided to look at The Beatitudes in the Bible. The Beatitudes can be found in Matthew 5. Jesus went up into a mountain with his disciples where he taught them the many things which constitute blessings. This blessed experience was known as the sermon on the mount
In this post we will be focusing on the first blessing pronounced in this sermon
“ Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” – Matthew 5:3
In this text another word for blessed in this text is happy or happier:
Colossians 3:2 King James Version (KJV)
2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
”- Ellen White
Do we see that without God we are nothing? Or do we kid ourselves that we are rich whilst we are in spiritual beggary?
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
Does my life mirror the blessing spoken of by Christ?
Challenge: reflect on the above question
Giveaway: I will be giving a copy of the book
