We’re looking at what Jesus said about what it reeeeeally means to be “blessed” with a series of statements known as the Beatitudes.
Here’s today’s selection:
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. (Matthew 5:5)
The world says: Only the strong survive. The proud rule. Nice guys finish last.
Jesus says: Blessed are the meek.
Why on earth would Jesus say that?
