The Moral Law and the Ten Commandments of the Bible convicts us of our sin and brings us to Christ for salvation. "Where fore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith." Galatians 3:24. This was the focus of evangelism by Dwight L. Moody. Many resources of Biblical evangelism with a major point of convicting people of their sin, using the Bible and the moral law, known as God's Ten Commandments.
Each of the beatitudes tells us something about what our ATTITUDE should be. Each one is described in the story above. Each one starts with the word "Blessed". Hand them the Ten Commandments as a way to live under God.
One of the meanings of "blessed" is happy or joyful. Each of the "blessed' statements describes a person who puts God and other's interest above his or her own interest. We cannot be blessed if we live selfishly.
