Meditation/Betty’s Verse Of The Day/3-29-15

Matthew 5 (NIV)

Introduction to the Sermon on the Mount

Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them.

The Beatitudes

He said:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

I started this series with Meek now we go to poor in spirit,

Matthew 5:3. Blessed are the poor in spirit — The word μακαριοι, here rendered blessed, properly means happy,

Here, “poor” is translated from ptochos, which literally means “to crouch or cower as one helpless.” It signifies the beggar, the pauper, one in abject poverty, totally dependent on others for help and destitute of even the necessities of life. In Galatians 4:9, it is translated “beggarly.”

Love BettyB Pray with me!

Precious Jesus today we humbly come to your cross, we lift up our eyes to you O Lord, keep us in your light as we go forth this morning to show other the love you have for them, keep us strong Lord, in Jesus Name amen.
