Feeling blessed? Think before you say it
Scott Dannemiller’s business had the best year ever last year. So it was easy for him to tell a friend that he was “feeling blessed.”
But that was all wrong.
Dannemiller wrote in his blog that “feeling blessed” is the one thing Christians should stop saying.
“When I say that my material fortune is the result of God’s blessing, it reduces The Almighty to some sort of sky-bound, wish-granting fairy who spends his days randomly bestowing cars and cash upon his followers,” he writes.
“Calling myself blessed because of material good fortune is just plain wrong,” he said.
Dannemiller argues that God’s true blessings are not material things – not jobs, nor houses nor new cars.
