Scheming, Blessing, and Faith
We all long to be blessed. When we’re young we look for it from our parents. When we get older we look for it from peers, bosses, and other people of influence. We keep looking for the blessings that the world and the people of the world give are temporal and conditional in nature. They eventually fade away. But the fact that we long to be blessed remains pointing to an ultimate blessing that will finally satisfy that longing. That blessing is God’s blessing. But who receives it?
