When Jesus said “blessed are the poor,” he was not endorsing people who live in overwhelming need or people who are oppressed or abused by a corrupt system that imprisons them. The poor of Cité Soleil or the homeless of Skid Row in Los Angeles are not blessed. Jesus was alluding to a different kind of voluntary “poverty,” a poverty that rejects the riches of the world…without condemning them.
