The Beatitudes - Part One

Some of the most well known teachings of Jesus (even within the world) come from the Sermon on the Mount recorded in Matthew Chapters 5-7. This sermon encapsulates much of the character of the New Law which Christ was going to usher in after His death, burial, and resurrection. This sermon begins with a powerful listing of “blessings” – blessings for things which the world at large, and many Jews themselves would consider folly. These “blessings” (commonly referred to as the Beatitudes, from a Latin word meaning “perfect happiness”) are important because they describe certain necessary qualities for the child of God.

Where is Your Source of Wisdom?

A Precious Commodity

Wisdom is truly a precious commodity in this world. The sad reality is that many have forgone the greatest source of wisdom which is found in the Word of God. There are many causes for such a situation, but most rest at the feet of man’s own arrogance. The seeking of knowledge is considered a carnal rather than spiritual pursuit, largely because many spiritual things cannot be defined empirically. The greatest wisdom the world embraces is what can be touched and examined. Anything beyond is simply a waste of time.
