Those who know their need of God’s help are poor in spirit and rich in blessings.
To be rich in blessings doesn’t mean being happy,
a temporary feeling dependent on circumstances,
it means to know joy and hope in our relationship with the Lord.
When the poor in spirit know their need of God the kingdom of heaven is theirs.
The verse says it is theirs, they don’t have to wait to be part of the kingdom.
They are in the kingdom now.
They are blessed.
Do you know that you need God?
Do you know the difference between being blessed and being happy?
Blessings this day of grace,
