GTA Advent Journey

Day Twenty-three: Blessedness

Read Matthew 5:1-11 The Beatitudes through the lens of the Christmas story…Blessed are the:

-poor in spirit–barren Elizabeth & Zachariah

-those who mourn–The killing of the Innocents

-the meek–those humble shepherds

-those who hunger and thirst for righteousness–star gazing wise men

-the merciful–compassionate Joseph

-pure in heart–highly favored Mary

-the peace makers- the glory of the angels

-the persecuted–The holy family in flight to Egypt

What do you find surprising in the Christmas story?
