Re: Verse reading–Matthew 5:1-16 (day six) “Blessed are the poor in spirit. . .blessed are those who mourn. (vs 3,4,) At a doctor’s appointment yesterday, I was attended by a young tech who had the word “Blessed” tattooed on his skin. I asked him about it and he told me his story. His happy gratitude is the foundation of our faith. People who know Christ are blessed in Him. People who seek the Kingdom are happier, wiser and more successful. (Now or later or both.) Even admitting that Jesus defines success in a different way, the FACT that we are blessed is undeniable. “He is a REWARDER of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6) I wonder how much weakness we welcome into our lives by leaving this promise unbelieved? How confident are you that you are (and will be) BLESSED to follow Christ and to contribute to an eternal Kingdom? Do you have a tattoo? How about a testimony?
