We Are All Poor...

My pastor preached on "Blessed are the poor in spirit" on Easter Sunday.  Therefoe, this quote really caught my eye:
“We are all poor, if only we will see it. We have nothing to offer God except the crushing debt of our sin. But Jesus offers us the riches of his grace: ‘For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich’ (2 Cor. 8:9).”
