Daily Word Of God

Matthew 5:2b-10

This is what Jesus taught his disciples:

‘How happy are the poor in spirit: theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Happy are the gentle: they shall have the earth for their heritage.

Happy those who mourn: they shall be comforted.

Happy those who hunger and thirst for what is right: they shall be satisfied.

Happy the merciful: they shall have mercy shown them.

Happy the pure in heart: they shall see God.

Happy the peacemakers: they shall be called sons of God.

Happy those who are persecuted in the cause of right: theirs is the kingdom of heaven.’

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 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.
