Matthew 5:1-12

New Revised Standard Version  

The Beatitudes  

5 When Jesus[a] saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. 2 Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying:  

3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  

4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.  

5 “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.  

6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.  

7 “Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.  

8 “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.  

9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.  

10 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  

11 “Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely[b] on my account. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.  




Serenity Prayer


God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; 
Courage to change the things I can; 
And wisdom to know the difference. 


Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time; 
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; 
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; 
Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; 
That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. 

-Reinhold Niehbuhr
