Heritage Nursing Home

 

                      2 Corinthians 5:20

 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.

                          We served the Heritage Nursing Home and their elderly residents.  We chose to serve their because Miah’s mom used to work their and elderly people love children’s company. We learned that this organization helps their residents a lot and they don’t really get kid’s company or any recognition. This organizations is selfless to the people they serve by giving up their time and money to work and help the elderly people in town.  We learned that being selfless is not only doing something for others but doing something for others with a good attitude. The people in my group were Hannah Knot and Miah Hutt. We had a spectacular time. We colored with the residents and kept them company. When you leave, type the correct password, and type a password and if you don’t, a super loud alarm goes off.

Matthew 5:1-12

 

Matthew 5:1-12 is

 

Introduction to the Sermon on the Mount

Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them.

The Beatitudes

He said:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
    for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
    for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
    for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
    for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

                        Matthew 5:1-12 means to me that Poor in spirit, they will get the kingdom of heaven. Those who mourn they will be comforted. The meek, they will inherit the earth. Those who hunger and thirst for righteousness they will be filled with righteousness. The merciful will see mercy. The pure in heart,  They will see God. The peacemakers,  they will be called children of God. Those who are persecuted because of righteousness, theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are we when people do evil against you. Celebrate and be happy because great is the reward for you in heaven, and in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were there before you.
