Blessing in word and deed
Blessing conveys God’s love and our love, God’s grace and our grace, God’s peace and our peace. Thus, speaking or writing blessings is vital in our relationship with God and one another. They edify. When we verbalize God’s love and our love, we also share the inheritance God has given us in Christ Jesus. In order to truly convey blessings, we must back them up with prayer, Godly character and God pleasing deeds.
