The Beatitudes promise the happiness we can expect when our thoughts are honest and good. These timeless teachings from Christ Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount are fundamental to spiritual education.
Mary Baker Eddy, Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science writes, “No purer and more exalted teachings ever fell upon human ears than the Sermon on the Mount …” (Retrospection and Introspection, p.91). Depicting the Christ idea in action, this book pairs a Bible story with each Beatitude to illustrate its point. These beloved excerpts from the Sermon on the Mount are a wonderful way to introduce children to the Bible.
