No attempt to be original with the title line for the sermon. We will, however, explain its roots in Abram's story (Genesis 12:1-3). Abram embraced his call as a blessed man; he returned the favor by blessing others. His life--on the move, intending to mend, and aiming to multiply--provides a wonderful example for how to live with purpose. Indeed, we are blessed to be a blessing.

In the closing chapter of Ruth, the loose ends get tied and the story comes full circle. The morning after Ruth has proposed to Boaz, he seeks out the nearest relative (kinsman redeemer) to discuss Naomi's land and Ruth's future. Boaz offers to care for Ruth and Naomi. He proves an honorable man. And two gutsy women who have lost much, regain love and security. This powerful narrative proves that when God's people submit to his leading, it has lasting impact.
