1. Death may speak, and its voice may sound authoritative and decisive. Nonetheless, it is a mere whimper from the grave.
  2. The Beatitudes aren't veiled Law, but pure gracious Gospel. Jesus tells us we are blessed when we are found in Him.
  3. God doesn't help those who help themselves. He saves those who can't do anything for themselves.
