Matthew 5:3

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

Everyone is looking for happiness.

Our culture’s solution is to grab all you can.

But no matter how many possessions or how much wealth, power, and prestige you amass…it only leads to wanting more and more.

It’s never enough.

The truth is: You have enough now.

In the Beatitudes…Jesus gave us the blueprint for being happy. The very first line (above) is the key to having life to the full:

Cling to nothing.

Do not hold onto anything long enough to become attached or identified by it. But at the same time…Jesus does not say to renounce those things.

Allow yourself to both enjoy the material things God brings into your life and be able to let them go…passing them on to others.

When you are not attached to things that don’t last…you will be open to the things that do.

You will be present to what Love dictates that you do each moment.

The kingdom of God will be at hand for you.
