what I learned today...


"Come bless the LORD....May the LORD, Maker of heaven and earth bless you..." Psalm 134

So I was reading from Beth Moore's book, Stepping Up, a journey through the Psalms of Ascent, (If you haven't experienced any of her classes you really should!) and this is what I learned. In the first part of Psalm 134, blessings are directed from you to God and then follows with blessings from God to you. Have you ever wondered what's the difference in you blessing God and God blessing you? Well, here it is - what I learned today...

"...the exchange is quite unequal: to bless God is to acknowledge gratefully what He is; but to bless men, God must make of him what he is not, and give him what he has not." Kidner

I have attended several of Beth Moore's classes and they are just wonderful. She has a way of making everything so real and really shows us how to put into practice everyday what God wishes for us. I would hope everyone would have a chance to read one of her books or attend a class. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Marty
