The Beatitudes are eight incredibly important statements that Jesus Christ made during the Sermon on the Mount. These statements show us what is truly important in life. They show us the values that Jesus cares about and wishes for His followers to care about too. Listen to the Beatitudes put to rhyme, from Kyle Holt’s The Bible in Rhyme.
