Blessed - Part1

Lifted from Rev. Mona's Blog of Sept. 30, 2014

'A great passage to read is Genesis 12:1-3.  It is here where we are introduced to Abraham and the awesome promises God made to him.  These three verses are pretty significant not only for the story of Abraham, but for the entire Bible because these verses establish God’s plans for his people.

The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you.
“I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you;
I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”

Check it out. The words bless/blessing/blessed are used five times. So it must be important, but what does it mean?' 

Please read Rev. Mona's Blog for the complete passage.
