The Beatitudes can be divided in 3 categories.

   b. The mourners (v. 4)
   c. The meek (v. 5)

1. Recall the times in your life when you were deeply dependent upon God. How was God’s present in those moments.

2. How can we bring mercy and peace to the downtrodden as well as to alleviate their suffering.

3. How can we remain joyful when we are persecuted, insulted and slandered.
