“Do we recognize our own meagerness? Perhaps we don’t know the joy of being given something, because we’ve never been in the position of really being in need. Jesus said, “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the Kingdom of God” in Luke 6:20. In Matthew 5:3 he says, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.” When Jesus spoke these words he proclaimed them to a crowd of people who came to him out of need. They were sick, they were broken, they were “like sheep without a shepherd.” He spoke to them after he healed their diseases and lifted their burdens and spoke the words of comfort, “Blessed are you who have nothing now, for great is your reward in me, my life, my gifts to you.” But these weren’t his only words, he not only spoke words of consolation, but also words of condemnation.”  – Ken Chitwood
