Introduction

Philosophers and theologians have written libraries of abstract truth, but none of their volumes have had the impact of the eight "simple" sayings of Jesus of Nazareth contained in his most famous sermon, the Sermon on the Mount. These are the Beatitudes, meaning "the blessings" (Matthew 5:3-10). Saints have shaped their lives around them, though a child can understand them. Their influence can be traced through history and continues today, even as you hold this book.

Here are thirty devotions on the Beatitudes, real teachings for real lives. Plant these eight seeds in your heart, water them with reflection, and they will grow into perspective-changing your life in ways you never would have imagined. There are no simplistic religious clichés here, only God's guidance for life that is as practical as it is profound.

In a world of upgrades, downloads, instant messages, outtakes, DVDs, and MP3s, turn down the noise in order to tune in to the power of the Holy Spirit which is whispering ancient truths to you, as it did to Jesus' followers some two thousand years ago. It is calling you to something you've always wanted. It is offering you blessedness and happiness. It is offering comfort, fulfillment, mercy, a glimpse of heaven, and the voice of God. Listen.
