Beatitude - Misconception about been poor in spirit

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

I am so happy with the responses I got as answers to my last question which I believe will help a lot to understand what poor in spirit means.

There are many misconceptions of the verse and I think it should be discussed. I want us to discuss what poor in spirit does not mean.

Poor in spirit does not mean spiritual fruitlessness. it does not mean been stagnant. it does not mean spiritual barrenness

The poor in Spirit is the opposite of spiritual pride.
The poor in spirit that owns the kingdom of God are those that are humble. It takes humility to recognize your need of God and seek for mercy.
