Winsome Words 6/10/15

The very first word that falls from His lips is a revelation of the will of God for man. “Blessed.” “Happy.” That is the Divine thought and intention for us. Sorrow, tears, pain, disappointment, all these may be, and are, of inestimable value in the Father’s discipline; but they are means to an end, made necessary by man’s sin. The end, in the purpose of God is blessedness. Happiness is that after which all men in every age seek, and the first note in the Saviour’s teaching reveals it, as what God is seeking also.  G. Campbell Morgan
