God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs. Matthew 5:3 (NLT)
Thank you. I am blessed.
How many times have you heard that? And maybe we are blessed but, somehow I don't think God's definition of blessed is the same as ours.
When someone says "I like your ____________(fill in the blank)." and we reply "Thank you, I am blessed.", is that really what God meant when he said "Blessed are ..........?
God says we are blessed when we are poor in spirit (broken) not when we have stuff. God says we are blessed when we realize all this stuff doesn't matter. We are blessed when we know that without him we are nothing.
So let me ask you. Why is it you think you are blessed? And more importantly, are you willing to be broken to be blessed God's way?
