The Beatitudes

“The poor in spirit are blessed,
for the kingdom of heaven is theirs.
Those who mourn are blessed,
for they will be comforted.
The gentle are blessed,
for they will inherit the earth.
Those who hunger and thirst for righteousness are blessed,
for they will be filled.
The merciful are blessed,
for they will be shown mercy.
The pure in heart are blessed,
for they will see God.
The peacemakers are blessed,
for they will be called sons of God.
10 Those who are persecuted for righteousness are blessed,
for the kingdom of heaven is theirs.

When I read the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-10) I think to myself that the general human mode of operation is to be the opposite of what is listed for being blessed.  Just look at some of these.  Being Poor in Spirit opens one up to God's help, but if one thinks they are rich in spirit, on their own efforts, than they are not "blessed" or spiritually prosperous.  The third beatitude says the gentle/meek/ reserved person is blessed and will inherit plenty.  They are not burden with the constant desire to brag or compete.  The same can be said for all the beatitudes.  If one is at odds with this list they are constantly carrying burdens.  They are not so much burden with poverty but with unhappiness.

When we go to Matthew 11:28, we read, “Come to Me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest..."  Yeshua being the theanthropus (Godman) had all the goodness of the Beatitudes in his character.  He called out many times for others to follow his examples to have a lighter burden.
