Every day, people are searching for joy, whether it is with family, friends, a job, or a moment of uncontrollable laughter. But why? What is this joy that we hunger after? Jesus claims that it is found in the reality of His Kingdom, and not in the world's twisted, broken kingdom, which will always lead to misery if we base our standard of happiness on it. Jesus brought a kingdom where the broken could be restored, and the mourning could be comforted. In the beatitudes, Jesus taught that those who didn't have it all together could be happy, and find peace in the reality of Jesus himself.
