Todays Gospel reading, one of favorite ones from the bible………The sermon on the mount…..
A short preaching….That sums up so much in 8 parts called the Beatitudes.
Blessed are the poor in spirit, the mournful, the meek, the hungry for righteousness, the merciful, the pure in heart, the peacemakers and the persecuted………for theirs is the kingdom of heaven where the Lord himself will comfort them as his children.
In short if we are struggling in life for doing what is good and right then surely some day we will rejoice for our struggles.
Blessed are those who see their struggles in life as a way back to God.
