The Things to Be

Jesus began the Sermon on the Mount with what we call, The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-12). This is not the technical definition, but the way I remember what that means is Be These Attitudes.
Be poor in spirit, be mournful, be meek, be hungering and thirsting after righteousness, be merciful, be pure in heart, be a peacemaker, and be happy when persecuted.
If you be these things, the Lord Jesus will take care of you, giving you the blessings of possessing the kingdom of heaven, comfort, possessing the earth, being filled, obtaining mercy, seeing God, being called sons of God, and going to heaven.
Wonderful! Where do I sign up? Believe on the Lord Jesus as the Son of God with all your heart, seek to live as He taught, and be baptized for the forgiveness of your sins.
