Blessed are the poor... not the penniless, but those free from love of money.
Blessed are those who mourn... not those who whimper, but those who raise their voices.
Blessed are the meek... not those who are wimpy, but those are patient and tolerant
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for justice... not those who whine, but those who struggle for change.
Blessed are the merciful... not those who forget, but those who still forgive.
Blessed are the pure in heart... not those who act like angels, but those who are transparent.
Blessed are the peacemakers... not those who shun conflict but those who face it creatively.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for justice... not because they suffer, but because they love courageously.
