sermon on the mount--blessedly poor

Blessed are the poor in spirit.

I am so happy the Lord said this.
I suppose my life circumstances have been pretty good, actually. But I’m within a few years of retirement and I’m still living pay check to pay check.
My big goal this summer was to watch my bicycle odometer turn over 10,000 miles. 
My goals nowadays are necessarily small.

I do have good friends. I’ve always had good friends.
But as for myself, I’m pretty poor and I'm pretty sure I'll always be poor. And my obituary will be pretty nondescript.

But the Lord Jesus tells me not only is this okay, He tells me I’m blessed to be poor.
