Sunday Blessing: The Beatitudes



When we think of being blessed, we focus on our families and friends, health and wellbeing, and home and career.  Matthew, chapter 5, focuses on the meek, merciful, and peacemakers, which is better known as the beatitudes.

Matthew, Chapter 5, 3-11

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

4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.



Sunday Blessing (Smile)



A smile is a facial expression that is formed by flexing the muscles at the sides of the mouth.  We smile when we are being sociable, when we are happy and joyful, and when we are having a good time. A smile can brighten a child’s day, it can lift a person’s spirit, and it can show kindness to a stranger. It doesn’t cost a penny and it makes you feel good when you give it away.  Give a smile away today!
