Blessing Through Words

In chapter seven I address an area that we can all pay more attention to, for our own blessing and to bless others: the words we use every day and with so many people.

In God's arrangement of reality, words are power packets. Some words may have little power, but no word has no power.

Just as the prophet's word is God's word and will not return void, so our words create reality in bothe the speakers and the hearers.

Words of blessing and praise both to God and man provide the soil for faith. When blessing and gratitude charcterise our relationships with others, there is an atmosphere of acceptance in which we can grow.

We need to be careful and intentional in the words that we speak, to speak only within the promises of God and so have and share the blessing of God.

Next, "Blessing And Sacrament", chapter 8.

You can purchase "Mutual Blessing" here.
