“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

Mt 5:3

The Bible presents many paradoxes that challenge our human way of thinking. We think of the poor as possessing very little, yet Jesus said the riches of heaven belong to the poor in spirit. Self-reliance robs us of God’s good gifts.

Jesus insisted that in order to follow Him, we must deny self. As long as we rely on our own resources, we will never place our trust in Him…

…Those who realize their inherent spiritual poverty apart from God will trust in Him, and He will enrich their lives immeasurably.  Do not allow your resources, wisdom, talent, or abilities to prevent you from trusting the Person who can bring you abundant life.
