Jesus said, “Blessed are the poor, for theirs is the Kingdom of God.”
There is a happiness that comes when we know that moment by moment we depend upon and beg from the Father in heaven. We cry out for help. We ask for assistance. We trust for Him to do the impossible, when we need it so desparately.
Jesus knew what it was to be poor. His mother Mary and Joseph were poor. He Himself said in reference to Himself, “The Son of Man has no where to lay His head.
Let us remember that the Son of Man refers not merely to a mere human, but to the royal-divine figure seen in Daniel’s vision. Why does the poor Son of Man have no place to -lay- his head? Because he is seated at the right hand of the Almighty looking over all of creation constantly.
Jesus suffered poverty so that we might receive the riches of God, if we would but ask.
Are you asking for the riches of God? Or are you content to work your way to comfort?
