The Suitable Blessing

December 26th, 2008

“…This is what their father said to them as he blessed

them, blessing each with the blessing suitable to him…”

(Genesis 49:28)

Introduction: “Why, that’s not at all like a socialistic agenda of ‘share and share alike'”! 49:28 certainly grounds the lesson. But, can this be how God operates?

1.            Consider from whom the blessing comes (49:1-2)

2.            Consider the beauty of a blessing (49:13,21)

3.            Consider consequential nature of blessing (49:3-4)

4.            Consider the Lord in the blessing (49:22-26)

5.            Consider Judah (49:8-12)!

Conclusion: The message of suitable blessing holds relevance to all who are able to identify with the biblical people of God.
