Incline Your ear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.
Well, I am poor and needy.
We've been studying the beatitudes in Sunday school. Psalm 86:1 reminds me of being poor in spirit, mournful and meek.
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
(Matthew 5:3-5, ESV)
I think it is amazing and even a little bit outrageous (dare I say that?) the way the Lord offers rewards to His children.
