Some years ago, Gary Smalley wrote a book in which he outlined the elements of a common Hebrew practice — the blessing. Used as a means of conveying property rights, the practice also served as a means of extending the divine blessing to each successive generation. The elements Smalley identifies are:
A meaningful touch
Spoken words,
Affirming the value of the one blessed,
Picturing a special future for the one blessed,
And promising active commitment to the one blessed

No one in the ancient world would have broken the practice down into individual elements, but Smalley’s treatment does provide a picture of a practice that is all but missing from modern life.

Both men and women often spend a lifetime looking for all five elements in the intuitive search for a sense of connection with the presence of God in their lives.

Where and when have you been blessed?
