The Beatitudes backwards (“Don’t be” attitudes)

How unfortunate are the spiritually passive for they miss out on the greatest aspect of life.

How unfortunate are those who act like they’ve got it together, for they are never comforted.

How unfortunate are those who refuse to cooperate with others for theirs is a lonely existence.

How unfortunate are those who have no desire for righteousness for evil will gradually trick and entrap them.

How unfortunate are the unforgiving for they shall be eaten up with bitterness.

How unfortunate are those with an unclean heart for they will see wrongdoing all around them.

How unfortunate are the trouble makers for they shall always be seen as a nuisance.

How unfortunate are those who are continually praised for they think they are better than they really are.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
