Blessings – Matthew 5: 1-12
Key Verse: 12a “ Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven."
Our lesson this week is ‘The Beatitudes’; Jesus tells us how our attitude should be towards life and each other. This lesson tells us that, for every negative there is a blessing to follow. 4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. The lesson also tells us about having compassion for each other so we can receive the same. 7 Blessed are the merciful,for they will be shown mercy. We all have difficult times at some point in our lives; the thing to remember is that God did not say that we would not suffer, what he said is that he will be with us always. Hebrews 13: 5b God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Blessings come is different forms, shapes and sizes and as the song says ‘Count your blessings name them one by one, count your blessings see what God has done and you will be surprised what the Lord has done’
Have a blessed week
