You Missed This One #2: Sermon on the Mount

"Blessed are you when..."

Yes, a lot of us have read Matt 5 multiple times.  So, I didn't miss it.  But I did, because "blessed" is really quite ambiguous to me.  But content speaks a bit deeper.

That blessed is actually closer to "content," "happy," or "happier" via Strong's/Dr. David Jeremiah.  This was pointed out to me yesterday while I 'randomly' had the radio at the right time.  You know, 'randomly'.

Matthew 5:

“ Content are the poor in spirit, 
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 
       4 Content are those who mourn, 
For they shall be comforted. 
       5 Content are the meek, 
For they shall inherit the earth. 
       6 Content are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, 
For they shall be filled. 
       7 Content are the merciful, 
For they shall obtain mercy. 
       8 Content are the pure in heart, 
For they shall see God. 
       9 Content are the peacemakers, 
For they shall be called sons of God. 
       10 Content are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, 
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 
 11 “Content are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

God, I want to be content.
