Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.  
Matthew 5:5


. . . learning from the men, women and children of Bible times
     The Beatitudes,  a lesson from Jesus               Sermon on the Mount                               This is a true story!
 

1. "Blessed are the poor in spirit,  for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
("poor in spirit" means someone who depends on God for everything)

2. Blessed are they who mourn,  for they shall be comforted.
(those
 who are sorry for sins will be comforted by the Scriptures that teach forgiveness)

3. Blessed are the meek,  for they shall inherit the earth.
(meek people are able to look beyond SELF and enjoy this 'fascinating' earth that God has made)

4. Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,  for they shall be satisfied
(reading the Scriptures will satisfy!)

5. Blessed are the merciful,  for they shall obtain mercy
(give mercy to your neighbor and God will give mercy to you)

6. Blessed are the pure of heart,  for they shall see God
(to be pure means to be free of all selfishness)

7. Blessed are the peacemakers,  for they shall be called children of God
(if we imitate God's love of man, we become children of God)

8. Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."

9. Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you, because of Me."

what do you call this mature female bovine?
it is also what you would call a mature female elephant, whale, or moose


  This animal has four chambers in its stomach.  The first chamber pushes its food back into the mouth to be re-chewed (chewing the cud).

 


 



 


 

how do you spell the name of this mollusk?

 



This daddy is very proud of his new offspring.  Why doesn't the little tadpole look like his daddy!


 
This is a 'jackrabbit'.  It is a hare, not a rabbit

Rabbits live underground.

They have big ears so that they can hear their predators; such as wolves or foxes.

A rabbit might sound a loud scream when caught; but otherwise the only sound it makes is with its foot to sound a thump to indicate alarm.

Rabbits have a double digestion process that enables them to get any nutrients that they may have missed during the first passage through the gut.


And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain; and when he was set, his disciples came unto him: and he opened his mouth and taught them...
Matthew 5:1-2

 

Birds have three chambers in their stomach.   The starfish can turn its stomach inside out and the camel can spit out the contents of its stomach at people he doesn't like!
To talk about more than one octopus, you would say 'octopuses' or 'octopi'. 

 

Octopuses come in all different sizes, from 2 inches to 18 feet.

The mouth of the octopus is not on its head like the cartoon above shows; but at the base where the arms attach to the body.

The arms have lots of suction cups on them so that they can crawl along the ocean floor; or if they want to, they can push water through their siphon that will propel them through the water

When an
octopus
gets frightened or angry, it can eject an inky substance into the face of his attacker so that the octopus can 'get away'.

The octopus
  is considered to be the most intelligent of all the invertebrate animals.

The mother octopus
 will lay as many as 100,000 eggs which she carefully watches for about 6 weeks.  When they hatch, they look very similar to their parents.
