Blessed Are the Poor

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:3 (NKJV)

A friend joked that I was poor because I enjoyed sewing a button back on my shirt. Years ago, a friend said I was wrong for having the dry cleaners sew the button back on my pants, when I was too busy. I did admire my mother for creating entire outfits with her sewing machine.  And it always gives me quiet joy to hem, sew buttons and create things.

“The deeper we grow in the Spirit of Jesus Christ, he poorer we become – the more we realize that everything in life is a gift.”  The Ragamuffin Gospel, page 81, by Brennan Manning.
