So, think about it. If an expert on happiness, the good life, how to have an excellent future were to give a talk, what would he or she say? Most of the people in North America, I’m guessing, think it would have something to do with prosperity, health, peace of mind, relational intelligence – and staying away from short-cuts that lead to regret. And that all makes sense. What we don’t suspect is what Jesus says – and what…and who He blesses: the poor in spirit, the people who mourn, the people who long to be good, fair people – who are shy about asserting themselves. The question we have is – how does this fit with what REALLY goes on in our world?
