B is for Blessing

Blessing: Everyone wants to be blessed. The basic concept here is to give or receive favor. Blessings are administered via words. Words are far more powerful than we realize. We have the ability to bless and to curse with the words that leave our mouths. 

There is a Proverb that states, “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” 

Another Proverb states, “Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.” 

Jacob Stealing Esau's Blessing
Guard Your Blessing: Blessings are so desired that some will stoop to deception and trickery to receive another person’s blessing as with the story of Jacob and Esau in the Old Testament. 

So it is not enough to give and receive blessings. One must also guard them with diligence, as there will always be those who try to talk us out of them by telling us we’re not good enough. Or they will try to steal the blessing outright. Oh yes, they will.
