Esther 7:1-8:17; Malachi 2:10-3:6; Revelation 21:9-22:5

The blessing of the Lord is upon you; we bless you in the name of the Lord. Psalm 129:8

When Boaz visited his grain harvest, his greeting to the reapers was, “The Lord be with you” and their response was, “The Lord bless thee” (Ruth 2:4). Because we have been so blessed by the finished work of our Saviour, we are to pass that blessing on to others. How encouraging to hear someone say, “Have a blessed day!”. “Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered” (Ps. 32:1). —Wm. H. Gustafson

Make me a blessing,
Out of my life may Jesus shine;
Make me a blessing,
To someone today. —Ira B. Wilson
