Advent Devotionals Day 19: The Beatitudes

Read Matthew: 5:1-12.

In Matthew 5:1-12, Jesus shares beautiful teachings known as the Beatitudes. As we journey through Advent, let's reflect on these words that remind us of the blessings in a humble and compassionate heart. Jesus tells us, "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." This Advent, let's embrace a spirit of humility, recognizing that in our simplicity and dependence on God, we discover the richness of His kingdom.

In these Beatitudes, Jesus shows us the beauty of a heart filled with mercy, peacemaking, and a hunger for righteousness. As we prepare for the joy of Christmas, let's ponder on being peacemakers in our families and communities, extending mercy to others, and hungering for the goodness of God. This Advent, may we walk in the ways of the Beatitudes, drawing closer to the heart of Christ.
