Here are the next two Beatitudes from Matthew, chapter 5.
5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”
Blessed will be the ones who mourn their sinful disposition
because their failures sadden God. Their contrite recognition
is a sign the Holy Spirit is at work within their heart.
Cause no one walks repentance road unless God plays a part.
5:5 “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.”
Those who let God’s Spirit lead and willingly obey
may seem weak to the unsaved world they travel in today.
While others trample on the truth in search of worldly gain
the Godly person’s more concerned with easing worldly pain.
So, those who put their faith in Christ can turn the other cheek
knowing God has set aside the whole earth for His meek.
