Speaking or writing blessings is vital to our relationship in Christ Jesus with God and one another. Blessing conveys God’s love and our love, God’s grace and our grace, God’s peace and our peace.
Jesus took little children in his arms and blessed them. (Mark 10:13-13) Jesus’ tender touch conveyed His love. Speaking blessings Jesus spoke to little children in their understandable way, surely short, sweet, on the mark and enduring.
Jesus’ apostles learned a lot about blessing that day. Paul might not have been there, but he sure knew how to bless. Speaking blessings forth in words we are inspired to speak, by the inspiration of God’s Word and the Holy Spirit.
A blessing that always blesses me and it is a good one to speak to children and adults
- 24The LORD bless you and keep you!
- 25The LORD let His face shine on you and be merciful to you!
- 26The LORD look kindly at you and give you peace! Numbers 6:24-26
Paul blessed many with these short blessings:
