THE BEATITUDES

The first Beatitude is, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt. 5:3) When we realize our need for God, then we receive the kingdom of heaven!

 

WEEKLY MEMORY VERSE:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt. 5:3 NIV)

 

FAMILY REFLECTION QUESTIONS: 

1. How have you needed God in the past?

(Take this time to share a story with your family)

 

2. During this time, how do you need God?

 

3. What is just one way you can show God this week that you need Him?

Being meek as being gentle or humble. We really do win when we place our strength under His control.

 

WEEKLY MEMORY VERSE

“Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth”. (Matthew 5:5 NIV) 

 

FAMILY Reflection QUESTIONS:

1. Why do you think Jesus would say this Beatitude, “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth”?

 

2. When has someone been kind or gentle with you?

 

3. When is it hard for you to be kind or gentle to someone?

God cares about the way we feel and He welcomes our emotions.

 

WEEKLY MEMORY VERSE

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted” 

(Matthew 5:4 NIV)

 

FAMILY REFLECTION QUESTIONS

1. Reflect on the last time you have felt sad. How did you feel God’s comfort? God can comfort us through His Spirit, through people, through memories, etc. Comfort means an ease of pain.

 

2. Write a letter to God about how you feel today.

(Ex. Dear God, I feel sad today because…)

How many of us are eager to do the right thing? 

 

WEEKLY MEMORY VERSE

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” (Matthew 5:6 NIV)

 

FAMILY REFLECTION QUESTIONS:

1. Do you remember a time when you were really hungry or thirsty for food or drink?

 

2. Do you remember a time when you did the right thing?

 

3. How will you hunger and thirst for God this week?

This lesson focuses on mercy, which means kindness in action. Mercy is an action and it is something that we do not deserve.

 

WEEKLY MEMORY VERSE

“Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.” (Matthew 5:7 NIV)

 

FAMILY REFLECTION QUESTIONS:

1. Why do you think it is hard to show mercy to people?

 

2. How can you show mercy to someone this week? (Being kind, forgiving someone, helping someone)
