Upside-down Values

 

The Sermon on the Mount has been described as the greatest message ever given…by the greatest preacher. The wisest words ever spoken…by the wisest person who ever lived. This may well be true, but have you ever stopped to think about the impact of the opening verses of chapter 5. Jesus begins with a bombshell! Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. For us it seems to have a pleasant ring to it. But that one sentence would have had a shattering impact on anyone who understood what Jesus was saying. Tonight we will try to understand why the thought here is so upside down to the thinking in Jesus day, and in our day too.
