"May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine upon us - so that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations. May the peoples praise you, God; may all the peoples praise you. May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you rule the peoples with equity and guide the nations of the earth. May the peoples praise you, God; may all the peoples praise you. The land yields its harvest; God, our God, blesses us. May God bless us still, so that all the ends of the earth will fear him." Psalm 67
God's blessings are good. God's blessings have purpose. God's blessings come to us so that we can be a part of making Him known to all the earth. As we praise God for His blessings out of an attitude of gratitude, we can actually point others to Him. As Christ followers, may we joyfully sing our praises to God so that the all the nations can know Him and fear Him. May we celebrate God's goodness and spread the news of His loving kindness today so that people can know His salvation and the freedom from sin that only He can give. Amen.
