Summary: How we can walk God’s path of blessing in life
The Biblical Path of Blessing
If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace, you are
among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.
If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million
who will not survive this week
If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of
torture, or the pangs of starvation, you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.
If you can attend church meetings without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death, you are
more blessed than three billion in the world.
And if your parents are still alive and still married, you are very rare, even in the United States.
