1. Everyone wants to be happy. What’s one of your happiest memories? What currently makes you happy?

READ Matthew 5:1-2. Who does it say Jesus is teaching? Enormous crowds began following Jesus--He was the talk of the town. The disciples were certainly tempted to feel important. Before speaking to the crowd, Jesus pulled His disciples aside to teach them about living a life that contradicts the world’s. Why was this important?

READ Matthew 5:3-10. Each beatitude tells how to be blessed or happy, although blessed means more than happiness. Jesus is teaching the believer how to walk God’s path to happiness.

2. Notice how Jesus reshapes people’s understanding of life in relationship with God. Why do you think he does that?

READ the scriptures from today’s message and discuss how these passages help describe in more detail a specific beatitude. Psalm 51:17, Psalm 34:18, Luke 18:9-14, Psalm 30:11 and Romans 12:18.

3. Which beatitude is most convicting to you, and why? How can you grow in this area of your life?
