“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”
When I’m with my grandchildren, I love to do things for them. I like taking them out for ice cream or buying a little toy for each of them.
In the same way, God loves to bless us, and He wants to bless us. Isn’t that a great thing to know? Jesus said, “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32 NKJV).
However, we throw the word blessing around a lot. We might say, “You’re such a blessing” or “Wasn’t that a blessing”? Sometimes we even use it to end a conversation that has gone too long, as in, “Okay, I’ve got to go. God bless you!”
