How we view a matter is important, and detrimental to all of our failures and successes. Many of our perspectives are influenced by cultures, experiences, studies, and even family traditions. Sometimes even our personal blind spots can get in the way of simple love, and hate relationships.
Even though at times it is healthy to maintain certain healthy trends, this does not equate that you, and I are living God’s best for our lives. The Lord always has away, to take those things which may seem foolish, and weak to the world to confound the “wise”.
3“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. 5Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. 6Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. 7Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
8Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. 9Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. 10Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
