We can memorize Jesus' beatitudes, like I did in elementary school, or we can live them, as Jesus intended. "Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy" (Matt 5:7). The test of one's relation with God is one's relation with other people (to quote Bruner). That's a pretty important test; we make the grade only by the grace of God.
