Sermon on the Mount (Black Lives Matter)

When Jesus said, "Blessed are the poor in spirit," did the disciples ask, "Why can't you just say ALL lives should be blessed"? 

When Jesus said "Blessed are those who mourn," did the disciples ask: "Why can't you just say ALL lives should be blessed"? 

When Jesus said "Blessed are the meek," did the disciples ask, "Why can't you just say ALL lives should be blessed"? 

When Jesus said, "Blessed are those who hunger/thirst for righteousness," did the disciples ask, "Why can't you just say ALL lives should be blessed"? 

When Jesus said, "Blessed are the merciful," did the disciples ask, "Why can't you just say ALL lives should be blessed"? 

When Jesus said, "Blessed are the pure in heart," did the disciples ask, "Why can't you just say ALL lives should be blessed"? 

When Jesus said, "Blessed are the peacemakers," did the disciples ask, "Why can't you just say ALL lives should be blessed"? 

When Jesus said, "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake," did the disciples ask: "Why can't you just say ALL lives should be blessed"? 

Jesus named specific people who faced specific challenges, problems, and/or injustices (Matthew 5:1-10). That's why it's important for Christians today to say: "Black Lives Matter."
