"Blessed are the cheesemakers."
What's so special about the cheesemakers?
Well, obviously it's not meant to be taken literally. It refers to any manufacturers of dairy products. (The Life of Brian)
It's easy to fool ourselves into mishearing, misquoting or even misunderstanding what the essential message of Jesus is in order to further our own agenda.
This one is pretty clear though:
You're blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That's when you discover who you really are, and your place in God's family.
