I’m reading Surprise the World by Michael Frost.  In it, he challenges us to bless three people this week–at least one of whom is not a member of your church.  He defines to bless as “to add strength to another’s arm.  What does it mean to add strength to another’s arm?  Anything that relieves their burden in life.  Anything that helps them breathe more easily.  Anything that lifts their spirit or alleviates their distress.” He then goes on to say that blessing generally takes three forms:  words of affirmation, acts of kindness, and gifts.  So I am praying about whose arms I can strengthen this week.  How about you?
