In the third episode of Upside Down Podcast, we’re chatting it up about what it really means to be “blessed”.
In a world of hashtags, it’s become all too easy to consider ourselves #blessed when life is going well. We’ve all done it, or something similar. But in doing so, what are we unintentionally saying about the hard times? Are we not blessed when things don’t go according to plan? Are we not blessed when our child is diagnosed with a serious illness, or when we don’t know how we’re going to pay the bills?
Or maybe, just maybe, have we gotten the very concept of “blessed” terribly wrong?
In this episode we dive into what the Scriptures teach us about the truth of being blessed, and it’s not always what we want to hear. Lindsy asks what it looks like for a poor single Christian Haitian mom to be “blessed” and Kristi hits it home by saying the Gospel is Good News, and if it isn’t Good News for everyone then it isn’t the Gospel.
We end it with a bit of silliness, talking about what emoji best represents us right now. Mine is the monkey covering his eyes, so now you know a little more about the state of my life right now!
