Blessed are the Poor in Spirit

This week we had Mrs. Coppin come in and speak to us about the verse below. She discussed how this can mean being humble and showing humility.

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven
.” -Matthew 5:3

We show humility in how we don’t brag about what we have but are thankful instead. She talked about how at Christmas time, it doesn’t matter if you get 20 gifts or 2 gifts, for we can be thankful for all that we have and be humble about what we got.

We were encouraged to be thankful and humble as we go into the Christmas season.
