by Devon McCoy on October 18th, 2021
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 5:3That’s heavy. Right off the bat, Jesus just rips the band-aid off. The Message translation reads “You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and His rule.”I RESONATE with this right now.
