Epiphany 4 – “How then shall we live?” In everyday terms the Beatitudes turn worldly wisdom on its head. Worldly wisdom seeks the blessings of wealth and influence; whereas the Beatitudes seem to deal with the 'blessings' of the downtrodden and humbled and victims of injustice. But the message of the Beatitudes is about the blessings that result from actions and attitudes which ameliorate the causes for lament – right actions carried out with integrity and humility, bringing blessing to both giver and receiver. The Beatitudes are a job description for discipleship.
Matthew 5: 1-12
