Just a short though regarding the following verse that I read the other day.
The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.

I stumbled across the following while reading a link on my wife's Facebook page: http://www.thebereancall.org/node/2745. Having read Jim Elliot's (while to be more correct, his wife's plublication of his) diary and other happenings; "Through Gates of Splendor" two or three times, I have always had the same feelings about the movie, "End of the Spear". The greater tradgy was not the death of the missionaries but the fact that only fifty or so years later that we could produce a movie that misses the very point of what it was all about. Not only must it grieve our Lord but truely it does a disservice to those "of whom the world was not worthy (Hebrews 11:38).

Psalm 1 starts "Blessed is the man who ...." When I think about blessing, what comes to mind; wealth, health, popularity, safety, food, relationships, etc? As you think on the words "Blessing" or "Blessed" you may begin to realise that in fact, outside of a church service, that these words are not used much nowadays. And as I think about it further, I am inclined to conclude that the desire for "blessings" (or being "Blessed") has generally been surplanted by the pursuit of "Happiness".
