The Beatitudes

Today I decided I would delve into the Beatitudes one by one.  The first one is Matthew 5:3 which reads “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”  Admittedly, that was never my favorite until I realized that was exactly when I turned to God wholeheartedly and was more willing to listen.  Otherwise, my thought is so filled with worldly nonsense and worry, that peace can never find a space.  This morning I will quieten my thought until I feel that peace.
