What does it mean to be “blessed”? In this case, blessed comes from the Greek word, Makarios, meaning: supremely blessed, by extension fortunate, well off, blessed, happy.
When we live the message of the Beatitudes, we experience what it is like to “be blessed,” and we serve as a conduit of God’s blessing to others.
For the next 8 days, take the “Be Blessed” challenge to live each Beatitude in a special way. Tell your friends they should too!
