July 6 – Beatitudes


July 6 – Beatitudes

How to understand them

There are at least 3 ways to understand them: (1) they are a code of ethics for Jesus’s time and place, BUT also a standard of conduct for all His lovers; (2) they contrast His values for His lovers to those who do not love Him; (3) they contrast the superficial “love” of the world to the love God wants for us; (4) they show how we will need to be in our eternal home.  These beatitudes are not multiple choice – pick what you like and leave the rest.  They must be taken as a whole.  They describe what we should be like as one of His “Shared Lovers.”
