How can you be poor in spirit, if it’s all going swimmingly?

When will you mourn, if there’s nothing to be sad about?

If no one is against you, how can your meekness be developed?

How can hunger strike, if you always eat so well?

When will you demonstrate mercy, if nobody ever wrongs you?

What marks out your purity, if everywhere you go is clean?

How can you be a peacemaker, if you never enter conflict?

How will you be blessed, if nobody is against you, telling lies about you, slagging you off?

Following Jesus is for when life goes wrong.


Matthew 5:2-11
