Sermon On The Mount | The Beatitudes | Essential Oils of the Bible
In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus Christ introduces the eight Beatitudes to his disciples in the Sermon on the Mount. Here, Jesus offers his disciples a message that teaches how to live one's life that is dedicated and pleasing to God. It does not come in the form of “Thou Shalt Not’,” a way of avoiding bad behavior but instead gives guidance on how to live a virtuous life. The Beatitudes puts focus on navigating life through looking inward with self-reflection and promises happiness and salvation by developing virtues and cultivating one's behavior. The promises made in the Beatitudes point beyond our earthly happiness and suffering and makes the ultimate promises of eternal happiness in the Kingdom of Heaven.
