How to Start Releasing Blessing to Others

Releasing Blessing is a powerful part of the Honor Cycle.

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

(Don’t limit its potential to your children, only. Think how you can use its power to build students, mentees, spiritual children and other people around you.)

1)    Understand the Power of Your Blessing. (tweet this)

The Bible says, “Life and death are in the power of the tongue.” The words you speak over your children have a tremendous impact.

2)    Separate Your Child’s Behavior from their Identity. (tweet this)

You probably understand your responsibility as a parent to correct inappropriate behavior. What you may not know is that these moments are ripe with opportunity to bless (or curse) your child.

3)    Let God Empower Your Blessing. (tweet this)

Chances are that blessing was not perfectly modeled for you as a child. That doesn’t have to be a setback. Faith in God is the perfect remedy, both as a model of blessing and as a source of empowerment.

What often looks like a parent boxing a child into a set of parameters or limiting their potential is really providing the stability necessary for real growth and effectiveness in the life of the child.

How have you seen older people channel your passion and energy?
