In the ground-breaking vision of the Beatitudes, Jesus laid out an upside-down picture of life in the kingdom of God.
But if we’re honest, it was so counter-cultural, that when taken at face value, the Beatitudes are not particularly desirable! (especially for leaders)
Many leaders today believe that if we’re going to get things done and be successful, we must “take the bull by the horns”. We are told that strength and power win in the economy of leadership.
So when Jesus boldly announces “Blessed are the Meek”, it’s no wonder that many of us shrug our shoulders and keep plowing ahead.
In today’s podcast, I share a sermon that explores the depth underneath Jesus’ words as he invited us into a life marked by meekness.
