God's Blessings During Challenging Times

God's Blessings During Challenging Times

Passage: Genesis 27:1-38

We say the words all the time; “God bless you!” But what does that really mean? The Biblical concept of a blessing means giving value, approval, and encouragement to someone else. In the Old Testament, the concept of a father passing a blessing on to a child was far more than a physical inheritance. A blessing meant giving that child the treasured knowledge and affection to let them know they were loved and believed in.
 
The truth behind the story of blessing in Genesis 27 is a powerful and unique lesson for everyone and a great study for Father’s Day.
