Matthew’s first nine beatitudes said, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” The world constantly tries to define us and tell us who we are. Our successes, belongings, talents, people in our lives, jobs, culture, and technology all make us who we are. We beclothed ourselves with these things and are tempted to find our identity in them.
But again, “Who Is God and Who Am I?”. To understand what it means to be genuinely free and live in freedom as sons and daughters of God, we have to keep this question before us. We have to let go of otherworldly things and not be afraid of staying in the place of spiritual poverty before the Lord.
This episode is the fourth and last part of our series on Interior Freedom by Fr. Jacque Philippe, which talks about freedom in spiritual poverty. An invitation for us to remain in this place of poverty and let God define us, give us everything, and ultimately lead us to the kingdom of heaven.
