TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

.

– Matthew 5:3 (NRSV)

.

REFLECTION…

.

The poor in spirit

are those who, through their own free will

– whatever their worldly status –

are humble, meek and gentle,

and ready to bear personal discomfort and even pain for God’s sake.

.

The poor in spirit

are those who place all their trust in God and His Son.

.

The poor in spirit

are those who acknowledge their sin,

those who accept their shortcomings,

who know of the darkness that’s within

and go before the Lord with a humble contrite heart

seeking healing and forgiveness.

.

The poor in spirit

are those who are empty of all pride,

but are conscious of their greed.

They are those who believe Jesus paid their debt

and who go meekly before Him,

trusting in Him

and constantly seek His mercy.

.

The poor in spirit

are those who believe in God’s power and great love

and who know

that when they repent and make amends – they are forgiven!

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Thank You Lord God. Forgive me Lord God.

Grazzi Sinjur Alla. Aħfirli Sinjur Alla.
