Who doesn't want to be more blessed of God? Though you may feel sometimes like everything is out of your control, one thing you can control is your mind. People attempt to control others and even their circumstances, but what we need to control is our own thoughts. As you will see, taking responsibility for your attitude is the first step in aligning yourself with God and His greatest blessings.
Do you want to be happy? The pursuit of happiness is a choice. This decision is made by what we place our attention on and in turn, what we choose to ignore. In these statements, commonly know as the "BE-attitudes", Christ teaches us how to be blessed and what to focus on in order to be happy. This serves as His introduction to the Sermon on the Mount.
