Weekly Scriptural Reflection for 31 March 2014

Weekly Scriptural Reflection for 31 March 2014

May the Lord bless you and keep you.

May the Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you.

May the Lord lift up His countenance on you and give you peace.

Numbers, Chapter 6, Verses 24 – 26


Giving a blessing to someone is one of the most beautiful and intimate gifts that we can give.  At a recent retreat, Rich and I experienced this gift first hand and, as a result, we now bless each other every morning and evening. This is why we chose the blessing from Numbers 6:24-26 to launch Spiritual Bytes – Visualizing the Spirit.  You can start off using these verses then, as you become comfortable with the blessing ritual, you might like to create your own words to make the blessing more personal for the person/s receiving it. If you are looking for some creative inspiration for your blessings, check out Max Lucado’s 31 Days of Blessing, or Jan Richardson’s In the Sanctuary of Women.

  1. What a beautiful idea, Rich and Margo! I think all of us from MFP 2014 have been wondering how we will stay connected once we “graduate” in June. This certainly is a “blessing” to all of us and I look forward to future weekly reflections. Thank you!

  2. All I can say is beautiful. It is beautiful to see you and your wife allowing the Holy Spirit to work through you
    And hearing that call. God Bless You both!
