 23 “Tell Aaron and his sons to bless the people of Israel with this special blessing:

24 ‘May the Lord bless you and protect you.

25 May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you.

26 May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.’

27 Whenever Aaron and his sons bless the people of Israel in my name, I myself will bless them.”

YOU HAVE A GREATER POWER TO BLESS YOUR CHILDREN THAN ANYONE ELSE

HEBREWS 7:7 And without question, the person who has the power to give a blessing is greater than the one who is blessed.    

A FATHER BLESSES HIS WIFE AND CHILDREN (MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU…)

A LEADER BLESSES HIS SUBJECTS (GOD BLESS AMERICA)

A PASTOR BLESSES HIS CONGREGATION (BLESSED COMING IN, GOING OUT)

IT’S OUR OBEDIENCE TO FATHER (GREATER) THAT INVOKES BLESSING (FAVOR) ON US (LESSER)

FAMILY IS AN AREA THAT REQUIRES WE USE THE AUTHORITY GIVEN TO US BY CHRIST TO BLESS AND SEE PROSPER

PROMOTION - POSITION - PRIORITY

PROMOTION (WHAT) 

    DON’T COMPLIMENT ON GIFTING - COMPLIMENT ON CHARACTER

 GALATIANS 5 - LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS,     GENTLENESS AND SELF CONTROL (CHARACTER)

POSITION (WHERE)

PRIORITY (WHY)

HEBREWS 10:24-25 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.

PROVERBS 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go;  even when he is old he will not depart from it.
