We’re sitting at Jesus’ feet, listening to the greatest sermon ever preached: the Sermon on the Mount.

For the past several days, we’ve been taking a deeeeep dive into the Beatitudes and what it reeeeeally means to be “blessed.”

Just in case we missed the point somehow, Jesus concluded with a series of woe-full warnings in direct opposition to the world.

The world says: Get rich.

Jesus says:
