Aaron’s Blessing

4I enjoy reading and thinking about blessings.  Whether from the Bible or other traditional blessings, they are worth our reflection.  Here is my favorite one.  I will probably write more about this one later.  It is the blessing that God gave to Aaron and his sons to use in blessing the people of God.

The LORD bless you and keep you;

The LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;

The LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.

— Numbers 6:24-26

You might want to read an article by Don Whitney on praying this blessing.  It is very helpful.
