The poor in spirit are comforting people who are in need of comforting. Comforting people who are sick, people who are going through a hard time, such as poverty or grieving over a lost one. Helping the poor is sacrificing your own needs, to help those who need it. Both connect to each other because you’re helping the poor, and sacrificing your personal needs to help those who need it. It’s helping both the poor and the poor in spirit if you care about them and if your willing to let go of the things you own and helping or seeing someone grieve, and comforting them. It’s seeing what other people are going through, and helping them with the struggles their facing.
