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.
We are the blessed of the Lord. That blessing makes rich and adds no sorry with it. We are chosen, anointed and appointed by God Himself. We have such a rich heritage. We are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, we are merciful, we are the peacemakers, we are the pure in heart, we are the persecuted for righteousness, we are the meek, we are the body of Christ, we are the Blessed!
