Matthew 5:4 - 2nd Beatitude

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In Matthew 5:4, Jesus teaches his followers to be "blessed" when they mourn. This may seem like an odd concept, as mourning is typically associated with feelings of sorrow and discomfort. However, the speaker suggests that there is a deeper meaning to this teaching. Mourning can lead to repentance for past sins, which in turn can bring comfort and forgiveness from God. By embracing our grief and seeking out God's guidance, we can transform our lives and find peace in the face of difficulty.
