Read: Matthew 5-7

Jesus opens up his Sermon on the Mount with the Beatitudes - a series of unexpected, countercultural ways of thinking that almost seem backwards to us. Blessed are the poor, those who mourn, those who are hungry?

In God's Kingdom, yes!

Over these next few weeks, you're going to notice that a lot of Jesus' Words seem backwards from how we naturally want to do life. That's ok! Choose to trust him even when what he calls you to is difficult or doesn't make sense. His way really is the best way.
