Powerful, Comforting Words

Jesus Preaching the Sermon on the Mount, by Gustave Dore

Then Jesus turned to his disciples and said,
“God blesses you who are poor,
for the Kingdom of God is yours.
God blesses you who are hungry now,
for you will be satisfied.
God blesses you who weep now,
for in due time you will laugh.

 

What blessings await you when people hate you and exclude you and mock you and curse you as evil because you follow the Son of Man.  (Luke 6:20-22, NLT-SE)
