As I have been studying the Beatitudes in Matthew 5, I have been reading “The Gentle Art of Blessing” by Pierre Pradervand at the same time and found it very helpful. In the book, the author tells about how he began blessing others and especially those who had hurt him in some way. He told how he just didn’t use the words, but dug deep to see everyone’s true identity.
This spoke to me as I think of those that may not be my favorite people and then the list grew as I became amazed. If I truly love God, I must find Him in everyone. What a great lesson! That is exactly what I will do.
