Are you blessed? We throw the word “blessed” around almost carelessly I think. I asked people on Facebook the other day “how has God blessed you” beyond material things? The answers were astounding and amazing. I encourage you to go take a look at the post to see some amazing stories of God’s blessings.
I ask this question is because I often think that we don’t take the time to “count our blessings” as the saying goes.
In today’s gospel reading we hear Jesus’ words in the Beatitudes of Matthew’s Gospel. Jesus delivers powerful words about how people on the margins ARE blessed. Not just sometime in the future will they be blessed, but now.
You too are blessed. God wants to shower all God’s blessings on you through Jesus Christ. Yes, the blessings of life, love, grace, forgiveness and salvation are freely given to you. There is nothing you can do to earn God’s blessings, they are yours now. To hear more head on over to YouTube or Spotify.
May God bless your week!
