Does anyone ever aim to be poor?
It’s not usually our goal . . . even if Jesus did say:
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
We typically want more (of whatever), not less.
I sat in a metal chair underneath a tent last Saturday morning for Outdoor Church. It’s a once-a-month service for the homeless and poor in our community, followed by a free meal. One of my friends, Brenda, sat beside me.
