The Beatitudes from the Latin word “blessing”, Luke 6:20-22, 20 Looking at his disciples, he said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. 21 Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh. 22 Blessed are you when people hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man. These verses describe what it can mean to be a Christ follower and the standards for conduct as believers. They ultimately contrast fake piety with true humility and show us we are no better than anyone else as humans but are blessed through God’s grace in our lives.
