From F.W. Boreham’s ‘A Late Lark Singing’
-God bless you! Few of our human propensities are more interesting or attractive than the instinct that impels us to bless one another.
-May God bless you! is the natural expression of all that is best in my heart and it makes an irresistible appeal to all that is best in his.
-Can anybody imagine that the Lord God of Israel would have instructed Aaron so to bless the people (Numbers 6:23-27) unless He Himself intended to bestow upon them all the boons (benefits) and benisons (blessings) of which He spoke? In the verse that follows the stately words, God as good as says that, if Aaron promises, He Himself will perform.
