Beatitudes for a new age

As we face challenging and uncertain times, it is good to know that there are standards and pillars that remain unchanging and unshaken.

Blessed are those who see the poverty of every man and do not judge, for each of us is facing a hard battle that others do not know.

Blessed are those who give without considering the cost, for their sacrifices will always be remembered.

Blessed are those who honour the poor and marginalised, for theirs is the true and lasting reward.

Blessed are those who spend their time with the friendless and orphans, because these friendships are pure and every moment speent is priceless.

Blessed are those who selflessly shepherd the lives under their care, even when it is costly to them, for their debts will be repaid.

Blessed are those who forgive and release all grudges, for their gift is freedom from stress and worry.

And most of all, blessed are those who look at life with childlike faith and wonder, for they will never lack the best things, all of which are free!
