To review on this final week of our series, this blessing helps us understand what a blessing is supposed to do. Its five parts convey hope that God will:
- Bless and protect
- Radiate with joy because of us
- Be gracious to us
- Show favor to us
- Give us peace
When we ask God to bless others, we are asking him to do these five things. The blessing you offer will not only help the one receiving it; it will also demonstrate love, encourage others, and provide a model of caring to those who watch.
