Daily Word Of God

Matthew 5:2b-10

This is what Jesus taught his disciples:

How blessed are the poor in spirit: the kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
Blessed are the gentle: they shall have the earth as inheritance.
Blessed are those who mourn: they shall be comforted.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for uprightness: they shall have their fill.
Blessed are the merciful: they shall have mercy shown them.
Blessed are the pure in heart: they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers: they shall be recognised as children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted in the cause of uprightness: the kingdom of Heaven is theirs.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • The Beatitudes becomes the “mantra” of our life, if we believe in Jesus the Son of God, who has come to give us eternal life.


  • Each of these Beatitude will speak to us and touch us differently or we would find some of them particularly difficult to live in our daily life.


  • All these Beatitudes guide us to be Christ-like and for this we need to “die to ourselves” so that the Truth of Christ can be made present in our daily living.
