life changing words

"When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a hill and sat down.
His followers came to him, and he began to teach them, saying:
'Those people who know they have great spiritual needs are happy,
because the kingdom of heaven belongs them.
Those who are sad now are happy,
because God will comfort them.
Those who are humble are happy,
because the earth will belong to them.
Those who want to do right more than anything else are happy,
because God will fully satisfy them.
Those who are pure in their thinking are happy,
because they will be with their God.
Those who work to bring peace are happy,
because God will call them his children.
Those who are treated badly for doing good are happy,
because the kingdom of heaven belongs to them.'"

Matthew 5:1-10
(NCV, Max Lucado Study Bible)

Did you happen to notice that verse 3 and verse 10 are connected? Just noticed that today for the first time. I love it when God opens my eyes and teaches my heart. :-)

LIVING A BLESSED LIFE,
