Who are the poor in spirit?

Posted 04-27-09 at 08:52 AM by Song of Mercy
The poor in spirit are those souls who do not believe they are sufficient in themselves apart from God. They see themselves in a position of need. They are beggers. This humble position of begging God for a greater understanding of Him positions them for the blessing or congratulations of God himself.


So far we have looked at the beginning section of Matthew 5:3. "Blessed are the poor in spirit." My understanding of this portion of scripture is:

Happy are the poor, for they see their need and want of God and are congratulated by Him for this understanding or knowledge.
