I love how Jesus turns the world on its head . . .
How does he view the poor? Blessed.
The hungry? Blessed.
The mourners? The hated? The excluded? The insulted? The rejected? Blessed. Blessed. Blessed. Blessed. Blessed.
What does he say about the rich? Woe.
The comfortable? Woe.
The well fed? Those who laugh now? Those who are celebrated?
Woe. Woe. Woe.
What should we do to our enemies? Love ’em.
What if someone mistreats us? Pray for ’em.
What if someone smacks us in the face? Turn the other cheek.
What if someone steals from us? Give ’em more.
