The Beatitudes: Peaceful words for Saints in a Troubled World

As we become more like the Savior, we are able to take such comfort in such scriptures as the Beatitudes from the Sermon on the mount: 

"Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. 

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.  Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.  Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 

Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you (Matthew 5:3-12)

Such peaceful words for those saints in a troubled world.  What peace can we find in these words?  to obtain mercy, to be called the children of God, and many more words of peace.  May we prayerfully study those, and remember them, and in them find peace.
