Poverty in Wealth, Wealth in Poverty

[Christ Jesus] though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.1

[B]eing rich he became poor, for your sakes; that through his poverty you might be rich.2

May our many material gifts not blind us to our true poverty. We must recognize our emptiness before we can accept His wealth.


1. Phil 2:6-7.

2. 2 Cor 8:9.
