Mt. of Beattitudes

Jill sitting on the traditional site of the Sermon on the Mount

Close to the height of His popularity, Jesus delivered the Sermon on the Mount, which included the Beatitudes.  It is perhaps the most read of Jesus’ teachings and introducing something more than what the Law of Moses had become.  It moved the focus from things we do – our behavior, to the feelings and motives we have.  If we have correct motives, if we develop the attributes of Christ, our Christian acts will follow – a by-product of who we have become.

NOTE: This is a tweak of a previous post that I wanted to do to honor Elder Maxwell on his birthday.

My wife, Jill and I love to go to Education Week at Brigham Young University every fall. It is a time for us to be together (without kids) and fill our spiritual reservoirs.

Normally I would be in awe of Dr. Millet but this time I was struck with a feeling of reverence as I saw Bro. Maxwell. He is the son of the late, Elder Neal A. Maxwell. Those who know me well know that I absolutely loved Neal A. Maxwell.
