#BLESSED (RTBP Week Two)

Dear (Insert Your Name Here),
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what it means to be blessed. I think it’s a word we like the sound of and a concept/state of being we all want for ourselves as Christians – and on some level even as human beings in general – but I don’t quite think we understand what it means TO be truly blessed.
Somehow, we have made the mistake (I believe) of attaching ‘blessed’ to material gain and social standing as Christians. We hashtag #blessed on our Instagram photos posing by our new cars, or use the word when we tell others about the rare opportunities we get.
