The 10th Commandment

Read about all Ten Commandments:

Read both versions of the Beatitudes found in Matthew 5:3-10 and Luke 6:20-26

For this task, pay special attention to the 10th Commandment and the first Beatitude in Matthew and Luke.

1. Create a visual that emphasizes a point of connection from the 10th Commandment and the first Beatitude.

2. Include your visual in a post in your blog in which you write about “the poor” and the “poor in spirit.” What are some examples of “good desires” or good will intended to help the poor and poor in spirit? How can you, your school, your community, province, and country do more to show good will to the poor and poor in spirit?

20And he, lifting up his eyes on his disciples, said: Blessed are ye poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.
21Blessed are ye that hunger now: for you shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for you shall laugh.
22Blessed shall you be when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.
23Be glad in that day and rejoice; for behold, your reward is great in heaven. For according to these things did their fathers to the prophets.
