“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:3
Are you poor in Spirit? Most of us when we think of rich and poor, we think about the material world. But the material world and spiritual world are totally different. Many of us today in the material world are fine. Most of us have a roof over our heads, some food on the table, and a few dollars in our pockets. However as most of us have discovered, material wealth does not provide happiness or peace.
There are a lot of rich people, even many “celebrities” who end up trying to fill the void in their lives that material possessions cant. Many it even leads to suicide, so if money does buy happiness, why are there so many depressed celebrities?
So what does “Poor in Spirit” mean? Most of us have experienced or are experiencing trials and tribulations. Jesus said we should expect this (John 16:33). Maybe your struggling with an addiction, a disease, an illness, or maybe the struggle is with your family or loved ones. God knows your pain and hears your prayers and cries.
That’s why we should take hope in Jesus message that Blessed are those “Poor in Spirit” or the ones persecuted and struggling. For the Kingdom of God is Yours! Remember Jesus said about the New Heaven and Earth, that he will wipe away every tear, and there will be no more pain or suffering. (Revelation 21:4)
So rejoice in the words of Jesus Christ, for all of you who are suffering, our time to rejoice is coming soon in the Kingdom of God Amen
