HE LIFTS US UP: This should “Be (our) Attitudes”… (Matthew 5:3-12)

beatitudes

We are all different…. but we all want to be blessed.

We come from different backgrounds, different cultures, and even different countries. However, we are all human. With that, we all have desires to be loved, nurtured, nourished, treated with kindness and respect, and yes, blessed. No one enjoys being yelled at, abused, harassed, criticized, or attacked, verbally or physically. We should treat each other with love, kindness, mercy and gentleness while seeking righteousness, choosing good over evil, with a  pure heart. The blessings will then come.

There are clear instructions written as to how we should act and what our attitudes should be.  You find these instructions in Matthew 5…  It’s from the Sermon on the Mount and is called… The Beatitudes:

The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-12)

“He said:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.
10 Blessed 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. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way, they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”

As we walk with Christ, seeking that purity in our hearts, He will remove any anger, guilt, resentment, bitterness, lust, pain, or anything that is not of God. He will replace it with a pure love, compassion, gentleness, kindness, peace, and a merciful heart for our fellow human beings. It is then that we will have…

    Thanks for stopping by and reading my posts, and liking them. I hope they have been a blessing to you. I thank you for being a voice for the physically and emotionally abused folks. Yours is a worthy cause. I enjoyed this post on correct character traits to manifest.

  4. Thank you for the reminder that we are all blessed regardless of status or culture..
    We can get down sometimes because of circumstance. But our assurance is “we will be blessed”.

    Thank you again..
