The Devil’s Beatitudes

The Devil’s Beatitudes


Not sure where I found this, but just came across it in one of my computer files. It’s worth the 3 minutes it will take to read it…and more valuable if you really pay attention!

If the Devil were to write his Beatitudes, they would probably go something like this:

“Blessed are those who are too tired, too busy, too distracted to spend an hour once a week with their fellow Christians in church – they are my best workers.”

“Blessed are those Christians who wait to be asked and expect to be thanked – I can use them.”

“Blessed are the touchy, with a bit of luck they may stop going to church – they are my missionaries.”

“Blessed are those who are very religious but get on everyone’s nerves – they are mine forever.”

“Blessed are the troublemakers – they shall be called my children.”

“Blessed are those who have no time to pray – they are easy prey for me.”

“Blessed are the complainers – I’m all ears for them.”

“Blessed are you when you read this and think it is about other people and not yourself – I’ve got you.”
