I've had a few requests for the Beatitudes I read this past weekend. Here they are...
The Devil's Beatitudes
Blessed are those who are too tired, busy, or disorganized to meet with fellow Christians on Sundays each week. They are my best workers.
Blessed are those who enjoy noticing the mannerisms of clergy and choir. Their hearts are not in it.
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 even stop going to church. They are my missionaries.
Blessed are those who claim to love God at the same time as hating other people. They are mine forever.
Blessed are the troublemakers. They shall be called my children.
Blessed are those who have not time to pray. They are prey for me.
Blessed are you when you read this and think it is about other people and not about yourself. I've got you.
Fr. Greg Esty
