Blessed Are . . .

I was sitting in bible study and my teacher was talking about the beatitudes. She said that this was one of her favorite chapters in the entire bible because it describes spiritual traits to happiness and the outcome. The greek work makarios, translating to blessed is defined as; happy, supremely blessed, well off.

So I decided to read through and do a little research myself. However, I looked at the entire bible, not just this one chapter to see where in the bible it mentioned makarios/blessed relating to traits or actions.
