Blessers vs. Converters
Being B.L.E.S.S.ed and B.L.E.S.S.ing others is not immediately accessible, but it’s not out of reach. It’s a result. It’s sowing and reaping. Blessing is determined by outcome and purpose. Remember God’s plan for loving your neighbor and changing the world is through B.L.E.S.S.ing them not converting them!
