Where would you be today without those who have been encouragers in your life? When you're hurting, you need gentle encouragement and you can be an encourager to others. Today meet one of the Bible's most wonderful encouragers in Acts chapter 4.
Jesus began His Sermon on the Mount with a well-known list of beatitudes. But what is a beatitude? Beatitude is really the satisfaction, joy, happiness, and blessing we feel when we know God has completely fulfilled a spiritual need. It is the attitude that ought to be reflected in the understanding of God's perfect provision. Beatitude is the real happiness that escapes the people who seek happiness. It is the real blessedness that comes only to those who seek the blessing of God. His beatitudes are the Keys to His Kingdom.
