“God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.”-

“God is high and lifted up. He lives forever. His name is holy. He says, “I live in a high and holy place, but I also live with people who are humble and sorry for their sins. I will give new life to those who are humble in spirit. I will give new life to those who are sorry for their sins.” Isaiah‬ ‭57‬:‭15‬

“God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”-

““All you people who are thirsty, come! Here is water for you to drink. Don’t worry if you have no money. Come, eat and drink until you are full! You don’t need money. The milk and wine are free. Why waste your money on something that is not real food? Why should you work for something that does not really satisfy you? Listen closely to me and you will eat what is good. You will enjoy the food that satisfies your soul.” Isaiah‬ ‭55‬:‭1‬-‭2‬

“God blesses those who are merciful, for they will be shown mercy.”-

“People who are kind will be rewarded for their kindness, but cruel people will be rewarded with trouble.” Proverbs‬ ‭11‬:‭17‬

“God blesses those who are persecuted for doing right, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.”-

“If we remain faithful even in suffering, we will also rule with him. If we refuse to say we know him, he will refuse to say he knows us.” 2 Timothy‬ ‭2‬:‭12‬

“God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers.”-

“Be happy about it! Be very glad! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted in the same way.”-
