BEAT 8: The way of surrender - 'Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness'
In many instances, it feels good to do good. We are often rewarded for our acts of kindness. But what about those times when doing the right thing leads to pain and negative consequences? Jesus said, “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
Whatever your story, whatever your struggle, the beatitudes invite us all to a ninefold path of recovery. In them, we hear the whispers of another world, a new way of being human together.
