Are they blessed or are they losers?

I was visiting with some terribly poor children. They were happy and cheerful and seemed delighted to have visitors. Then one of the Indian men who had come with us said softly, “They are just losers.”

I was very shocked that he said that. I said , “Aren’t these the poor who Jesus said were so very blessed?”

I continued to think about that. Then I went to my room to read The Beatitudes.

More about this tomorrow
