Going to Try a Little Something

I'm going to try a little something.  It's time to memorize.  I haven't done that in years.  So to get started I'm going to use the Beatitudes.

Here's the first few weeks worth:

Matthew 5: 1-2
1 Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down, his disciples came to him.

2 And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying:

Matthew 5: 3-5
3 Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.  Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

Matthew 5: 6-8
6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
7 Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

I will admit the last verse (seeing God) is my favorite.  But mercy rates up there highly!
