Did I Hear That Right?
Synopsis: Have you ever heard someone say something that when you heard what they said it just didn’t sound right? That is what many in Jesus’ audience must have thought when He shared with them what we call the Beatitudes (Mt 5:3-10). Humanly speaking these statements are paradoxical. That perception is at least a part of the human problem. I believe Jesus was sharing God’s view of things and painting a word picture of what it will be like when the Day of the Lord comes.
Scripture Text (NIV): Matthew 5:3-12; Isaiah 55:8-13; James 3:13-18; Psalm 37
Scripture Reading: Isaiah 55:8-13
