Successful Life Prescriptions

We are all familiar with the Beatitudes that Jesus taught his disciples in Matthew 5.

We have come up with a set of similar life prescriptions which contain some powerful teachings from scriptures.

Here they are:

*Blessed are those who live each day with eternity in view. For in looking back o life there will be no regrets.

*Blessed are those who embrace a vision greater than themselves, for if that vision is the Kingdom of God, their work will endure forever.

*Blessed are those who treat others as they want to be treated- with mercy, grace, forgiveness, reconciliation, love and patience.

*Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall sow seeds for peace.

*Blessed are those who endure temporary trials, persecutions, hardships and illness, knowing that God uses all things to shape them for eternity.

*Blessed aer those who take every opportunity to be salt and light, giving a reasoned answer for their faith to all who ask.

*Blessed are those who love and pray for their enemies irregardless of their response, knowing that few have ever been argued into the Kingdom of God while many have gained entrance because of love.

*Blessed are those who sacrificially meet the needs of others, holding loosely to the temporary material blessings they possess.

*Blessed are those who invest in heaven.
