Mar. 31. Beatitudes and their Promises

Mt. 5:2-12; Lk. 6:20-26

The first lesson that Jesus taught was a series of statements that are referred to as The Beatitudes. Each Beatitude stated a moral attribute and the blessing promised to those who live according to that principle.

A series of woes was also pronounced on those who were self-satisfied and trusted in their riches. It is a danger signal when evil persons are pleased with us.
