8.3 The Ethics of the Kingdom of God

Matthew 5:3-10

“The world of the Beatitudes is a backwards world. It is the world of Jesus. Not the world of the inconsiderate…. the career people elbowing their way up the ladder. It is the quiet world of the people with endurance. With the inexhaustible love. With the unquenchable hope…. Whoever follows Jesus does not follow the lords of this earth anymore, he follows a different lord. And in the middle of earthly wailing a heavenly melody resounds.”
