On March 12 1913, a rumor started in Columbus that a dam had burst and thousands stampeded East to higher ground. Once they got there they realized there was no flood and the dam was in fact to far away to ever cause any problem in the city. The next day everyone just went about their business too embarrassed to speak of it.
Bertha Adams was found dead in her home on Easter Sunday 1976. She died of malnutrition. Her home was full of trash. She begged food and clothing from strangers. Yet they found two safe deposit keys and found $800,000.00 of cash stock, bonds, securities worth more than $200,000.00!
Saltine crackers were invented by F.L. Sommer in 1876 by using baking soda in the leavening process. They were an instant hit and are just as popular today. The salt on the thin cracker is what makes them so good. People eat them as is or use them as a transportation device for other foods.
We will talk about three of the beatitudes - the beautiful attitudes.
We must realize that the 8 Beatitudes are actually like an and ending ladder. They build on each other and if you miss a step and fall you have to start over.
So we start with confession of need, mourning over sin, becoming humble, getting hungry!
The sermon on the mount was the catechism of the church. They felt that it was first important to teach how to behave and then what to believe.
The beautiful attitudes are Gods approval. The applause of heaven.
