  1. Jesus preached blessed are the poor in spirit who mourn.
    John Piper lists the attributes as
    -It is a sense of powerlessness in ourselves.
    -It is a sense of spiritual bankruptcy and helplessness before God.
    -It is a sense of moral uncleanness before God.
    -It is a sense of personal unworthiness before God.
    -It is a sense that if there is to be any life or joy or usefulness, it will have to be all of God and all of grace.
    Thanks for the reminder, sister.
