The poor in spirit

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:3)

When Jesus mentions the “poor in spirit” i think He means those who realize the absolute truth and raw unvarnished reality about their naked and bankrupt spiritual condition before God, with no illusions. They are blessed, therefore, for they know how much they need God.
