Blessed are the poor in spirit

Posted 04-26-09 at 11:03 AM by Song of Mercy
Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of god.

I have always wondered what the word blessed really means. To that end I spent some time in the lexicon reviewing the various uses. It seems to me that the main defining attribute with this word is position. That may seem like a silly statement since that is true of all words. Yet here there is a subtle word play that gives blessed two meanings.

First it means happy. Plain and simple.

Second it is a congratulations.


Thus happy are the poor in spirit and congratulations to those who are accepted in the kingdom of God.

Hugs, Song
