Blessed Are The Cheesemakers

Matthew 5:1-12

When Jesus saw the crowds, He went up the mountain; and after He sat down, His disciples came to Him.

Then He began to speak, and taught them, saying:

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 receive mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

  2. A lesser known beatitude is "blessed are those who burst after psoriasis, for they shall apart." ;)

  3. Thanks for these great reminders of His Words to us! But, your title and picture just show us how easy it is for us to misunderstand what the Lord says. We need to slow down and listen! Bless you!

    1. Hi Bettie,

      I thought the title and picture would attract readers to the post and read Christ's Words.

      God bless you.

  4. Your title is great, Victor! This reminds me of the story of the little girl in Sunday school who insisted she knew what God's name was. The teacher was puzzled, so she asked the girl to tell the class what it was. She began: "Our Father, who art in heaven, Harold be thy name."
    Blessings, my friend!

  5. It always amazes me when I read the blessings of the Lord, that His idea of being blessed is what most would consider being in trials and despair. It seems though that the richest blessings of the Lord come to us in form of some kind of suffering. Quite a concept to ponder, is it not? Happy to visit with you today, it's been a while :)

    1. How nice to see you visiting me here again Marilyn. Thank you.

      Quite a point to ponder that you make here. Could it be that at the time of Christ, (just like now I suppose), there were many poor people, desolate, sad, hungry, despised and so on. And they were ignored by high society, the rich and powerful, (just like in the parable of the rich man and poor Lazarus at his gate). And Jesus was pointing out to His audience that these down-trodden people are very blessed in the eyes of God.

      God bless you and your family.
