UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE:
Our attitudes determine how we view circumstances in our lives. How can our attitudes bring long-term benefits? Jesus’ Beatitudes taught the crowd and His disciples those heartfelt values and attitudes required of anyone who seeks to be in a covenant relationship with Him.
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus gave clear and detailed instructions on how to think, act, and respond as a Christian. The Beatitudes can serve as a template for the kind of attitudes that are possible and expected of one who claims to be one of the Children of God.
Dear GOD, help us not to depend on the things of this earth to supply our needs. Let us allow the mind which was in Christ Jesus also to be in us. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen
