The Beatitudes vs The Man-attitudes by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  Cursed is the one who trusts in man … but blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord.  Those who live a life in Christ do so because they are always meditating on the Word of the Lord.  The Beatitudes of Jesus Christ are just the opposite of what mankind proclaims – the “Man-attitudes”:

  • You are blessed when you have everything you want
  • You are blessed when you’ve eaten all you can
  • You are blessed when you’re happy
  • You are blessed when everyone loves you, and likes all your Facebook and Twitter posts
