How do you feel about Jesus saying those who face pain or struggles are “happy” or “blessed”?

How have you seen God at work in your life during difficult times?

How easy do you find it to see God at work in your life when everything is going well?

What does it mean to you to be the salt of the earth or the light of the world?

 

Acting on the Word

In difficult times this week, be alert to God’s presence with you.  Offer presence to another person who is struggling.
