God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God.
God blesses those who work for peace, for they will be called the children of God.
God blesses those who are persecuted because they live for God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs. "
"God blesses you when you are mocked and persecuted and lied about 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, too."
"You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it useful again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless.
You are the light of the world -- like a city on a mountain, glowing in the night for all to see.
Don't hide your light under a basket! Instead, put it on a stand and let it shine for all.
In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father."
"Don't misunderstand why I have come. I did not come to abolish the law of Moses or the writings of the prophets. No, I came to fulfill them.
I assure you, until heaven and earth disappear, even the smallest detail of God's law will remain until its purpose is achieved.
