People today tend to describe themselves as “blessed” when they experience a turn of good fortune. Biblical blessing, however, goes far deeper than our good fortune. To quote Sinclair Ferguson, “blessing … is the expression of God’s covenant goodness to those who trust and obey him, who mirror his image and express his character in the way in which they live in this world.” We see an illustration of this in Ruth 2.
