Old Testament Advent Poem No. 2

The Blessing Genesis 12:1-3

“Blessing” and “blessed” are abused words. They can often be used in quite trite ways. But …

Abram was promised

that he would be blessed

to be a blessing.

Blindly and faithfully

he obeyed

and went.

His family would bring forth

THE Blessing –

through, one, two, twelve

and multitudes – a nation.

His family line led

to a feed trough

in Bethlehem.

The Blessing:

a Kingdom, forgiveness

and life everlasting,

had come.

The promise fulfilled.
