If you look for figurative or symbolic meaning here this is a verse that points out a bit of Christian character. Compare it to such teachings as the Sermon on the Mount and you see principles like,
(Matthew 5:3 KJV) Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.Add things like turning the other cheek and you get a picture of someone who is not trying to dominate and control their world for their own profit. The contrast is “roughly” (5794) which is a personality trait that we are to discard.
As Americans we are at the rich end of the economic spectrum. As a nation with few truly poor people we have a tendency to think highly of ourselves. There is a warning here for us to demonstrate the love of Christ in all encounters.
So? The work of the Holy Spirit is to take us with all our rough edges and make us into jewels for His crown. Don’t hide behind, “Well, that’s just the way I am.” Maybe you were but hopefully you won’t be. We are to grow spiritually.
