7. A different kind of blessing
Scripture: Matthew 5:1-12
Spend some time thinking and praying about this passage. It seems Jesus’ message turns many “normal” or “mainstream” ideas in our culture upside down.
- How is the view of blessing in this passage different than the messages we hear in our culture about blessing?
- Why do you think Jesus challenges our ideas about blessing?
- How does your life look different when you think of blessing as Jesus describes it in this passage?
