The Beatitudes in Paraphrase

Good on those who have a peasant’s heart. 

Good on those whose spirits are crushed. 

Good on those happy not to get their way.

Good on those who’d rather starve than let others go hungry. 

Good on those who don’t say or do everything they have a right to say and do. 

Good on those who cannot imagine that they are important.  

Good on those who leave nothing but sweetness in their wake.  

Good on those whom God leaves hanging.
