    A Po' Folks Guide to Philippians
    By Dr. Ronald Shultz, BRE, ThD

    Book Summary

    Someone said that God must have loved po' folks because He made so many of them. God does love the poor and the rich as well. Although the word "poor" does relate to finances, many times in Scriptures it refers to being distressed or depressed. Jesus blessed those who were poor in spirit because they realized they were bankrupt before God and needed Him to enrich their lives here and hereafter.

    Paul should have felt poor in every way but wrote Philippians as the richest man in creation. He was in jail, but was freer than most of us. He was distressed and yet as joyful as a bride and groom on their wedding day.

    In my life, I have been po' in every biblical sense of the word. This commentary was written by a po' man who became rich spiritually desiring that other po. folks may find true wealth as well.
