Matthew 5:3-9

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

The world’s way of thinking is upside down!

The world says, “Blessed are the confident and capable”; Jesus says, “Blessed are the poor in spirit”. The world says, “Blessed are the happy”; Jesus says, “Blessed are those who mourn”. The world says, “Blessed are those who push to the top”; Jesus says, “Blessed are the gentle”. The world says, “Blessed are those who pursue physical pleasure any way they can get it”; Jesus says, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness”. The world says, “Blessed are those who get back at those who have wronged them”; Jesus says, “Blessed are the merciful”. The world says, “Blessed is the person who gets away with deception”; Jesus says, “Blessed are the pure in heart”. The world says, “Blessed is the person who gets his own way”; Jesus says, “Blessed are the peacemakers”.

What about your thinking? Is it more like the world or like Jesus?
