Matthew: Blessed are Those

Matthew: Blessed are Those

Scripture: Matthew 5: 1-12 (NRSV)

Blessed are the depressed. Wait…what??!! The Beatitudes kick off the Sermon on the Mount–the most famous spiritual teaching ever delivered. Jesus turns what is deemed blessed on its head. To be blessed–meaning happy or fortunate–is able to endure in good times and the bad times. This blessedness is for the present and the future. Listen how the future can break into our present to give us hope and joy to carry on through adversity.
