Blessings for Family and Friends is a guide for laypersons for implementing the biblical practice of blessing in their own lives, in their families, and in their community relationships. Blessing has always been God’s plan for humanity. Unfortunately, many of today’s believers have been deprived of this aspect of biblical legacy that was a significant part of the everyday lives of first-century Christians. This book helps readers learn how to bless their family and community, and in doing so, how to experience God’s abundant blessings in their own lives. Each blessing is accompanied by biblical history and an explanation of its purposes. Blessings for Family and Friends will revolutionize your life and enrich your personal experience with God.
