Thought of the Day February 21, 2018 True happiness

By 10:34 AM

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of God.” There is a difference between spiritual poverty and poverty of Spirit. There are many who are spiritually impoverished and either don't know it or are not concerned about it. They may either have the physical necessities of life or lack them. But they lack what is most important: that which will make them truly happy, namely an intimate relationship with God. On the other hand, those who embrace the poverty of spirit humbly recognize that they are dependent on God, whether they have or do not have. Their identity does not rest on material possessions but on their relationship with God. This gift is their true treasure, the pearl of great price. They are rich in what ultimately truly matters. Lent is a time to store the right treasure.
