Word Wednesday .::159

Word Wednesday is posted every Wednesday. Each week I post a scripture that I've read that week that has spoken to me in a fresh way. I believe that if we read God's Word every day, He will give us at least one scripture every week that will impact us. Sharing Scripture with each other is like iron sharpening iron. Leave a comment and share a scripture that has impacted you this week.

Here's the scripture that stuck this week:

Luke 11:27-28 NIV

27 As Jesus was saying these things, a woman in the crowd called out, “Blessed is the mother who gave you birth and nursed you.”

28 He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.”


One thing that God has been showing me is that we greatly misuse the word "blessed." We ascribe blessed to things that are not blessed, mostly for justification purposes. Jesus gives this woman a dose of reality. It probably busted her bubble. May Jesus continue to bust our bubble and give us true perspective on life. May we treasure His Word more and more and obey, which leads to true worship.

What's your Word?
