I'm married to the beautiful Bridget and father to four fantastic kiddos. We plant churches and live in a fifth-wheel camper. I write and smoke a pipe whenever I get the chance. Currently camped in Austin, TX.
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” – Matthew 5:3
Ever consider what it means to be poor in spirit? To be poor is to be lowly, without, lacking, even empty. If our spirit is already full of our own wants, dreams, expectations, talents, and wisdom, then there’s no room for anything else. However in Christ, when we empty ourselves of our self, then we can be filled with Him. The poor in spirit are indeed blessed, for they have the fullness of the kingdom of heaven, Christ Himself.
