#Blessed

Dear Mosaic Boston Family,

As of right now, a search for #blessed on Instagram shows 94.3 million posts. The pictures include people at the beach, working out, traveling, eating, which, come to think of it, pretty much encapsulates 95% of Instagram posts. 

What is the blessed life? What do we mean when we say "God Bless America" as we'll hear over and over this week? What are you asking for, when you ask for God's blessings? How many of those "blessings" can be reduced to materialism? How many of our requests for "blessings" include jobs, money, or housing? Then, once we get those things, how long does our feeling of "blessedness" last, before we start asking for more? 

What did Jesus mean when He talked about the "Blessed" life? Spoiler alert: it's not we we usually think of (actually pretty much the opposite)!! Join us tomorrow as we look at Luke 6:12-26, where Jesus turns our understanding of the blessed life upside down. 

Praying for you,
Pastor Jan
