Death is not a blessing, but mourning is a gift of God to bring goodness into the midst of badness.

Blessed are the Merciful

Matthew 5:7

The cut and thrust of business life is all about getting the advantage: mercy is seen as a weakness to be despised, unless it is a way of manipulating people.

Blessed are the Pure in Heart

Matthew 5:8

Purity is an absolute measure: something is either pure or impure; it cannot be 99% pure … because it is then impure. To be 'pure in heart’ is to be 100% free from sin, and totally pleasing to God.

Blessed are the Peacemakers

Matthew 5:9

'Peace', in the Bible, is not primarily a warm emotional feeling or sense of relaxation, but the absence of hostility.
