Just an image Prompt: In the first few verses of Matthew chapter 5, this is where we find the Beatitudes.
What does Matthew 5:3-4 mean to you?

Matthew 5:3-4
3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

First of all I want to congratulate Marvelous Friend for choosing such a great prompt! Interpreting scripture is called hermeneutics and it is very important that we do so properly. This is a particularly deep scripture because it has layers of interpretation. The poor in spirit refers to those who are humble of spirit and are not haughty and high minded. One has to empty themselves of pride before one can believe in Jesus Christ or admit that they need Christ. This is how we become "poor in spirit". We completely empty our hearts of all idols and focus on Jesus. Then we are saved and become part of the kingdom of heaven. Our citizenship changes from the world to heaven.

Mourning in verse four has several meanings. One: It refers to the resurrection. We will see our loved ones again. Second, it means those who mourn over the apparent success of sin in the world. Sin will be conquered.

Write about self motivation today.

Self-motivation is what keeps me plugging along toward my master's degree and what has earned me two associate degrees and two bachelor's degree. It takes a lot of self-motivation to get out of bed in the morning. My temptation is to sleep in.

Does anybody know who invented peanut butter? It was a former slave named George Washington Carver. His captor had a bumper crop of peanuts as did every other peanut farmer in the south. There was nothing to do with the peanuts as the market was saturated with them. George, by now free, was working as a chemist in the south. He set out to invent ways to use the excess peanuts. One of the inventions was peanut butter.

J.K. Rowling
That snide remark by Malfoy has to be the result of an envy trigger. What kinds of things, situations, or actions can trigger other people’s envy?"
