Our poverty, God's dwelling place

Our poverty, God’s dwelling place

How can we embrace poverty as a way to God when everyone around us wants to become rich? Poverty has many forms. We have to ask ourselves; “What is my poverty?”
Is it a lack of money, lack of emotional stability, lack of loving partner, lack of security, lack of safety, lack of self confidence….?Each human being has a place in poverty. That’s the place where God wants to dwell! “How blessed are the poor,” Jesus says (Mathew 5:3). This means taht our blessings is hidden in our poverty.
We are so inclined to cover up our poverty and ignore it that we often miss the opportunity to discover God, who dwells in it. Let’s dare to see our poverty as the land in which our treasure is hidden – Henri JM Nouwen.
