Devotions for June 7, 2017

MATTHEW 5:4-6

God blesses those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
5 God blesses those who are humble,
for they will inherit the whole earth.
6 God blesses those who hunger and thirst for justice,[a] for they will be satisfied.

JESUS AND JUSTICE

Jesus paid it all on the cross. That’s what has been done for you and if you are looking for the cross, plus more justice, you are asking for more than you are going to get. Jesus wants us to turn the other cheek, even though that goes against all that our culture tells us.

PERSONAL REFLECTION

Q: What do all of these people have in common? Hurt, pain, broken hearts, or all of the above?

Q: When you are hurt, do you seek a God who sees you and knows your pain, or do you seek revenge or vengeance out of anger?o

Q: When people see you, do they see your struggles as something that you are just trying to get through, or does your life become a testimony of focused faith?
