Jesus gave what is famously known as “the Sermon on the Mount” to His followers during His life on earth.
In it, He taught them
or different blessings people can experience throughout life if they will follow Him.
Let’s take a look at a few of them now.
Blessed are they that mourn:
for they shall be comforted.
After taking a moment to ponder the scripture, tap on the right side to continue.
I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
We are promised that in our grief and heartbreak, Jesus Christ will always be there to comfort us if we will turn to Him.
Who could you help comfort this week? Take a moment and think of someone who may be in mourning. Write down their name, and select an action you want to commit to this week.
Blessed are they which do hunger ... :
for they shall be filled.

I am the way, the truth, and the life.
Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Blessed are the merciful:
for they shall obtain mercy.
