Watchman’s Daily Devotional:Christ’s Definition of Happiness Is Surprising and Contradictory When Compared to the Standards of the World

daily Dev

"Blessed are the poor in spirit . . . those who mourn . . .the gentle . . . those who hunger and thirst for righteousness . . . the merciful . . . the pure in heart . . . the peacemakers . . . [and] those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness" (Matt. 5:3-10).

According to the world's standards, the definition of happiness given by Christ may seem shocking and contradictory. While popular magazines may characterize happy people as those who enjoy others but are not self-sacrificing, Jesus described happy people differently. He portrayed them as spiritual beggars who acknowledge their lack of resources and exhibit meekness, mournfulness over sin, self-sacrifice, and willingness to endure persecution for the sake of reconciling people to God.

This perspective may appear more like misery than happiness to the world, but true happiness, according to Jesus, begins with being poor in spirit, mourning over sin, and hungering for righteousness. Displaying these attitudes may lead to persecution and rejection by worldly individuals, but ultimately, it can result in great reward in heaven. As a light in a dark world, strive to faithfully reflect Christ's attitudes and draw others to Him through your testimony.

The Watchman

In the Bible, the Watchman is responsible for keeping watch and warning others of potential danger or impending judgment. The role is mentioned several times in the Old Testament, particularly in the book of Ezekiel. In Ezekiel 33:6, God says to the prophet Ezekiel, "But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman's hand."
