God Alone Satisfies

Matthew 5:3
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

Our culture says, “Happy are you who are rich in power, prestige and possessions, for yours is the kingdom of this world.” Jesus says, “Happy are you who are attached to nothing…for yours is God’s kingdom…now!” In the Our Father we pray, “Thy kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.” How can the kingdom come “on earth” without our cooperation in the here and now? Dear God, give us the grace to let go of our attachments to things that will not last…so we can experience the joy of Your everlasting love and grace in the present moment.
