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

 

 Jesus called His disciples together and began to teach. He didn’t restrict others who wanted to hear His message. So there were many listening to this great paradox. His disciples understood it but many were confused.But this poverty of spirit is a gracious disposition of soul, by which we are emptied of self, in order to our being filled with Jesus Christ.”
Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible.

David understood as he stated in his psalm of repentance, Psalm 51:17 (KJV)
17  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. We are to come broken, poor , Romans 7:24 (KJV)
24  O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? Only when we have come to Christ, poor in spirit, repentant will we ever come to understand the amazing riches of His kingdom. We are blessed!
