Matthew 5:1-3 – Blessed are the poor in spirit

Matthew 5:1-3 – Blessed are the poor in spirit

Posted: 31 Jul 2019 09:15 PM PDT

Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them. He said: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. – Matthew 5:1-3 (NIV)

Today’s commentary

by Dave Whitehead, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

Our culture has a “believe in yourself” attitude, but Jesus says to listen to our nagging doubts. A poor person says, “I don’t have what it takes. I need to go to someone who can help me.” Jesus is that person that we need to go to. We can’t do it ourselves. We need to become poor in spirit if we expect to have the abundance in the kingdom of heaven.
