    Matthew 5:2-12
    "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 sons of God.
    Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    "Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 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 an adult, I find this to be whimsical and childish.

      It provides a peace of mind for those of us who are believers in Jesus.

    I find it to be the hardest challenge (and most worthy) that Jesus every laid down for his followers.  But, I also find it comforting, because whether I've chosen to be or not, I've often fallen into these categories - particularly the poor in spirit, and those who mourn.  I'm just grateful that no matter what, I am blessed.  In all circumstances.

    I wrote a hub on this topic. A comparison of our thoughts on God as reflected in the beatitudes to the manner in which the words would be interpreted if God was replaced by the likeness of what humanity might ultimately become.

    I find the beatitudes to be a challenge, of sorts. Many believe they relate to one or more. But if not illusory, the likeness is most assuredly fleeting.

    I think it's beautiful and uplifting and what I like about it is that it sends a positive message that challenges and adversity can be overcome.

    To me it sounds like a prayer for those who need praying for. May all those in need benefit from the goodness of the Earth
