Poor: Psalm 41.1 VOTD

“How blessed is the one who treats the poor properly!
When trouble comes, the Lord delivers him.”

Psalm 41.1

“The psalmist is characterizing himself as such an individual and supplying a reason why God has responded favorably to his prayer. The Lord’s attitude toward the merciful mirrors their treatment of the poor.” —NET Bible

How can we make ourselves “poor” before the Lord? What is the blessedness of those who are merciful to the poor?
