Today’s lesson comes from the book of Luke 6: 17-26, the Sermon on the Plain/Beatitudes. The Sermon on the Plain is a collection of teachings of Jesus that pre-date our written gospels. They circulated among the earliest believers in the couple of decades after the death and resurrection of Jesus. The Beatitudes were often also called “The Blessings and Woes”. With the Beatitudes Jesus places choices before us as to how we should live our lives. These choices are not always easy in today’s culture.
But daily deciding to listen to the voice of, following the teachings of, and welcoming the Spirit of the Lord, determine whether we receive overwhelming joy or eternal regret.
