The Purpose of Blessing (3 of 5)
We are believers in the goodness of God upon our lives and the full blessings of God overtaking us. We understand that we are positioned for blessing and there is great power in the blessings. We stand in belief that our text for this series is ours to live out: ''I have been blessed to be a blessing.'' There is purpose behind the blessings. We live with purpose and we give with purpose. When we see that our blessings have purpose, then we begin to have a divine perspective on our resources. We see our money as something sanctified for use in God's wonderful plan and eternal purposes. Our money has a mission!
