Matthew 5:3-4 – Blessed are the Poor in Spirit

Matthew 5:3–4 (CSB)

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for the kingdom of heaven is theirs.
Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.

We are in Week 2 of the NT-F260-Reading Plan.

Scripture Memory

Matthew 5:3-4 covers two significant shifts in our mindset that are needed to enter the kingdom of God.

  • We grasp our deep need for a relationship with God.
  • Our “Aha” moment when we realize we are the one who is causing our separation from God through sin.

Take a look at the Word Study of Sin for greater understanding.
