I have decided to share a 72 day daily challenge with you each day until Easter, April 1st. We are doing this in our Relief Society, and I thought I would like to share it here as well. I shared a little about the challenge here.
Each day I will share the daily video here and then my personal thoughts about it after I have personally watched it. Today is Day 18.
Sermon on the Mount: The Beatitudes
Jesus teaches His followers essential Christian traits, such as kindness, forgiveness, and love.
1 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:
2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are they that mourn : for they shall be comforted .
5 Blessed are the meek : for they shall inherit the earth .
6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness : for they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful : for they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart : for they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers : for they shall be called the children of God.
10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness ‘ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice , and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle , and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works , and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
I love the beatitudes. Hearing or reading them always makes me want to be a better person. I really love this video because it gives a visual example of each of the beatitudes as the Savior speaks them.
What did you learn from today’s video?
