Remember in Finding Nemo when the clownfish Marlin is listening to Squirt the little Sea Turtle? Marlin says: “”It’s like he’s trying to speak to me, I know it! You know you’re really cute, but I don’t know what you’re saying!” Sometimes when we read Jesus’ words in the Beatitudes, (“Blessed are the poor in spirit, Blessed are those who weep now,  Blessed are you when people hate you”, etc…) we can end up feeling kind of the same way: “It’s like He’s trying to speak to me…I know it! But I don’t know what He’s saying,” In this message, we’ll unpack these loaded statements and wrestle with the question: Is the problem His words or our worldview?
