The Beatitudes, 2012: Closing Comments

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
This is the fifth and final edition of Beatitudes rewritten by my classes. Most of this evening's post was penned by my Gospels' classes, many of whom are sophomores. The girls are in pink, the boys in blue. I think they make great sense in our world.
