“Jesus doesn’t say, ‘If you want happiness, do these things. Here’s the list.’ He speaks as if there are people who already have this life. He gives us these nine kingdom realities—not ‘Nine Boxes to Check,’ ‘Nine Secrets to Success,’ or ‘Nine Habits to Change Us from Whiners to Winners.’ . . . What Jesus is doing with this one word is opening the door for us to see the upside-down kingdom.” — Nick Nye
