Matthew 5:1-12

And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:

And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

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

Blessed [are] they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Blessed [are] the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

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

Blessed [are] the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

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

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

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

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

Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great [is] your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

Do not these eternal, glorious
Heavenly kingdom promises
And truths
Presented by our
King of Kings,
Prince of Peace,
Redeemer-Priest
Totally bless
Us with the gift of
The ultimate eternal
Paradigm shift
Of our triune God’s
Eternal perspective
Regarding value and worth
On this earth?

And should not
Our loving Savior’s
Perspective then
Become our daily treasure,
Our eternal measure,
Our only standard of success
In a world that is not our home?
