Paused for a minute to discuss,
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:3‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Many people misunderstand this passage and the meaning of the term “poor.” Jesus was not referring to financial or social status, as we often associate with the term “poor.” Jesus was referring to “poor” in the sense of us understanding, in humility, our spiritual poverty or bankruptcy. When we understand that we are helpless and hopeless without Christ…then and only then will we truly understand Jesus’ words. Jesus is the one that gives us wealth (spiritually speaking…and physical wealth as well, if He so chooses). We are “poor” from an eternal perspective apart from Jesus Christ. We can do nothing to change our poverty on our own…only by humbling ourselves and submitting to Him can we be plucked out of our “poverty.”

Jump squats-30 seconds of jump squats/30 seconds of rest for 5 minutes.

Mosey to put coupons back and then mosey to front of church for 30 more merkins.


It was an honor leading these HIM’s this morning.
