Matthew’s Beatitudes are meant to give comfort, not to challenge.
Sermon on the Mount
Jesus' sermon in Luke 6 is first and foremost about the people gathered.
In God's life, all creatures get attention.
We live in the land of all-you-can eat buffets. We entertain ourselves, so we never have to feel loneliness. Our celebrity culture brands ordinary people, so that we can keep consuming one another, never allowing space for loathesome humanity. We keep ourselves productive so we don’t have to mourn. If we fill our lives full with stuff, food, distraction and entertainment, we'll never even have to think about the emptiness.
