- The “when and then” mentality
The Beatitudes Matthew 5:3-12
“God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him,
for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.”
Matthew 5:3 NLT
Poor in spirit: a person who is dependent on someone else.
Pride: an inflated sense of one’s personal status or accomplishments.
“God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
James 4:6b NLT
- Admit that we need help.
- Ask God for help.
- Accept God’s help.
