Fourth Sunday of Epiphany 2017 – Matthew 5:3

Tuesday, January 24, 2017 

Matthew 5:3Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven (New Revised Standard Version).  How blest are those who know their need of God; the kingdom of Heaven is theirs  (New English Bible).

I sometimes refer to myself as a driver’s-side Christian, an attitude that relegates God to the passenger seat.  With God over there I am free to accept advice on an as needed basis.  May God bless all of our efforts as we seek to give up control and exchange seats.

Gracious God, help each of us be more open to your guidance.  Amen.
