Matthew 5:5 NCV
They are blessed who are humble, for the whole earth will be theirs.
Jesus began his sermon with words that seem to contrary each other. But God’s way of living usually contradicts the world’s. If you want to live for God you must be ready to say and do what seems strange to the world. You must be willing to give when others take, to love when others hate, to help when others abuse. By giving up your own rights in order to serve others, you will one day relieve everything God has in store for YOU.
