Blessed are the poor in spirit.
It’s not just the title of this episode, but the first of eight beatitudes, a section of Scripture that many of us memorized as we grew up. But we tend to have an aversion to the word “poor.” It is the opposite of what we strive to be and why we tend to work so hard every day. So, what if we told you that poor is exactly what our goal should be? Listen in to Pastor Isaac Roberts as he sits down with Pastor Ashley Henson, Student Pastor at our Scripps Ranch campus, to dive deeper into what this beatitude means and how it should direct our actions. They address questions like what does it mean to be poor in spirit? Pastor Ashley talks about how this beatitude impacts students, and how it has been challenging her personally.
