Blessed are the meek, says Jesus. And everyone who reads that says, "Really? To be happy I should be meek, a timid, submissive, humble, even cowardly type of person? Are you sure, Jesus?"
The problem is that we misunderstand the kind of meekness Jesus is talking about. He is talking about a gentle patience and humility that comes from spending time with God and trusting in Him.
Living Out the Sermon on the Mount helps readers find happiness by following Jesus. The eight Beatitudes form an outline of the Sermon of the Mount and as readers read the 40 devotional articles and apply them to their lives they find that they are indeed truly blessed, just as Jesus promised.
