Jesus and last Wednesday

Matthew 5:1-11 (New International Version [NIV])

Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them.

He said:

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

A man dressed as George Washington, praying, and holding a big Trump flag.

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

A guy with a cross shirt at the riot.

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

A guy with skeleton gloves holding a Bible at the riot

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

The guy who stole an envelope from Nancy Pelosi’s office.

Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.

Rioters beating the Capitol policeman

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

A woman wrapped in a Trump flag with the gallows erected outside the Capitol

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

Invaders breaking windows to enter the Capitol

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Protestors marching around the Capitol seven times as the Israelites did around Jericho before invading and killing everyone except Rahab’s family.

Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Matthew 22:37-40

‘Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

And one last verse

Chris Hamilton is a writer trying to make the next step, to go from pretty good to freaking outstanding. He's devoting himself to doing the work and immersing himself in writery pursuit. He also hasn't quite mastered this whole Powerball thing, and still has a pesky addiction to food, clothing, and shelter, so he has to work, too. Blech. View all posts by Chris Hamilton
