“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
Today’s verse is how Jesus starts one of his keynote teachings known as the Beatitudes.
These teachings are also probably one of the most ignored teachings by people who like to proudly proclaim they are “Christians.”
Blessed are: the poor in spirit; the meek; the merciful.
These do not reflect much of the rhetoric I’m hearing and seeing on social media or in the news in general from many self-proclaimed Christians.
Jesus’ first Beatitude really sets the table.
Blessed or happy and ready to serve are the poor in spirit, or those who are not clinging to possessions, fame, power, or prestige.

We enter into an experience of spacious peace.
Here we discover that we are loved by Love itself.
Each of us is the beloved of God.
In this way-of-being, we are naturally a vessel of compassion and justice.
