"Bless you!" We say it because someone has suffered loss or has made a positive difference in someone's life. We say it because someone sneezed. But what does "bless you" even mean?
"Blessing" is a weightier word than many people think it is. It is a concept given to us by God, and the meaning of it is revealed in His Word. Rev. Dr. Chris Mitchell and Deaconess Mary Moerbe dig into the meaning of the Hebrew term for "blessing," brk, which is used in nearly 500 places throughout Scripture. Drawing from the teachings of our Lord, Mitchell and Moerbe present the nature of God's blessing of His creation and the steadfast love He has for us.
An insightful resource for serious lay readers, students, and pastors, this book helps us better understand how wewho have received God's blessing through His Soncan become blessings to others and can bless God in return!
