Description: How can someone who is sad actually be happy or blessed? Once again Jesus offers the ultimate paradox as he challenges his followers to find internal joy, happiness and blessings in the midst of mourning. As we look at the 2nd Beatitude Jesus introduces in His sermon on the mount, you might be surprised to find this is not your normal mourning or sadness. Jesus is challenging those who would follow him to allow their hearts to be broken over what breaks God's heart with the promise of comfort and ultimately happiness as a result. How does that happen and how does it effect your relationship with God and the world around us? Listen in to find out. From Matthew 5:4
