“Bless you!” We say it because someone has suffered loss or has made a positive difference in someone’s life. We say it because someone sneezed. But what does “bless you” even mean?

“Blessing” is a weightier word than many people think it is. It is a concept given to us by God, and the meaning of it is revealed in His Word. Rev. Dr. Chris Mitchell and Deaconess Mary Moerbe dig into the meaning of the Hebrew term for “blessing,” brk, which is used in nearly 500 places throughout Scripture.
