Why does the Church Keep saying Jesus was Poor?

If Jesus wasn't poor, what else have we got wrong about the bible?

Why does the Church Keep saying Jesus was Poor?

The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 8:9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.

This statement is not referring to Jesus being poor.  In fact, he was a craftsman and small businessman before he started His Ministry.  Jesus became poor and took on the curse of poverty when He was crucified on the cross, so that we might become rich both financially and spiritually.  In 2 Corinthians 9:8 it says And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

What is the cost of Spiritual Restoration and how do we go about it?

I recently visited Venice and was struck by the contrast of new, old, restored and “work-in-progress”. In part, the erosion of the world around us is quantified by our inability to identify works of art. Philanthropists, councils, governments and the like enjoy the praise from the public who are in awe of the large sums of money that pay for restoration. But what about our spiritual restoration, who is going to stump up the cost for that? Does anyone ever think that there is a price to pay?
