A lot of folks use the word “blessed” in a lot of different situations to mean a lot of different things. In fact, if you just take a trip over to Twitter and search #blessed, you’ll see some of the ways we consider ourselves “blessed.”
But what if Jesus were using Twitter? What would be worthy of #blessed?
Luckily, Jesus gave us an idea. He walked a long journey back to his hometown area, which was a mob of heartbreak, to proclaim blessedness. In other words, Jesus went out of his way, toward heartbreak to tell broken people that they were/will be blessed. Needless to say, when it came to #blessed, Jesus saw things differently.
He still hopes we’ll see it his way.
