More Beatitudes

Some contemporary practices I believed condoned by God:

Blessed are those who listen, for they will find accord

Blessed are the marginalized, for they will be sustained

Blessed are the builders of bridges, for they will be welcomed.

Blessed are the truth-tellers, for they will have peace of mind.

Blessed are the contrite for they will be free

Blessed are the caregivers, for they will enjoy satisfaction

Blessed are the hearth-makers, for they will have harmony

Blessed are the advocates, for they will be safe

Blessed are the kind, for God cannot do it without them
