Title: The poor are the rich

Text verse: Matthew 5: 3

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.


Those who are poor in spirit are rich in God.


  • A distinguishing feature of the poor in spirit is that they understand themselves to be completely dependent on God.
  • The poor in spirit are aware of their own limitations. They know that God loves them, and they trust in Him.
  • The poor in spirit do not rely on their own merits in order to attain salvation, but rather put all of their hope in the grace of God.
