Too poor to pay attention!!

We were coming home from church last night and Pappy asked me something about a sign along the side of the road and I told him I wasn't paying any attention....and he asked me if I was too poor to pay attention?  It got me to thinking about being poor!!!  I actually grew up poor....but we didn't know it because everybody else in our grammar school was poor, too!!  Not until I got to high school, did I realize there were people in the world who actually had lots of money!!!  The sad thing was that for many of them....along with their wealth came quite a bit of arrogance!!!

I'm so glad that God loves me regardless of how much money I have (or don't have).....no matter the color of my skin....my social status (or lack of one)....it doesn't matter to God....He's still gonna love me anyway....even when I'm too poor to pay attention!!

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

HOPE everybody has a great Monday!!!

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

p.s....to be "poor in spirit" is a sign of humility....to realize that nothing we have is worth more than being a child of the KING!!!
