The Beatitudes are a laboratory for discernment.  Each invites everyone to a decision.  Whom shall I serve? When I decide to serve the Lord instead of myself, I build up God’s kingdom.  The benefit of the beatitude decisions is that we receive far more blessings than woes.

Gracious God, I thank you for the invitation to choose blessings.  May your Spirit inspire me to always decide to follow your Way which I know leads to your choicest blessings.
