Blessed the Poor in Spirit
Synopsis Psalms 112:6-115:8 2/8/2022
God cares for the poor. And so, His name should be praised from the rising of the sun to its setting.
Israel, itself, was once poor. And yet, God delivered His Chosen People out of Egypt. He put them in a land flowing with milk and honey. And he demonstrated His strength throughout the world by the manner in which He brought them out.
Blessed Are the Poor In Spirit
Poor in spirit means I come to God with a persistent awareness of my absolute need for Him. My state by myself is an utter poverty. I am always indebted.
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matt 5:3
