The A Attitudes

A while ago I was studying the beatitudes, and contrasting Jesus’ definition of happiness with what our society usually thinks makes us happy. I started thinking, what are the opposite attitudes Jesus is directly attacking in his sermon? That led to this…

Matthew 5:1-12

Happy are the Rich
For theirs are the keys to heaven

Happy are the Content
For they are comfortable

Happy are the Powerful
For they shall rule the earth

Happy are the Full
For they want nothing

Happy are the Vengeful
For they shall obtain respect

Happy are the Experienced
For they shall see everything

Happy are the Fighters
For they shall be their own God

Happy are the Enforcers of righteousness
For they choose who gets to heaven
