Scripture: 1 Corinthians 1:18-31; Matthew 5:1-12
Key verse: “Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven.” (Matthew 5:12a)
Questions to ponder:
- How could it be possible to experience ‘blessedness’ amidst experiencing poorness in spirit, submission, mourning, or while yearning for righteousness?
- When showing mercy, making peace, suffering unjust persecution, or living for God alone seem like making a futile effort, how can we keep our faith strong in God?
- Were there times when you saw the rewards of being God’s messengers? What was it like?
